Building off her instinct to help others, Dr. Schneider always knew she wanted to pursue a career in education. She decided to teach art early on, as she had always been passionate about the field. In 1961, she graduated from Kutztown University with a Bachelor of Science in art education. Shortly thereafter, she enrolled at Temple University and earned a Master of Education. After gaining experience as an art consultant, Dr. Schneider became an art professor at Kutztown University in 1970.

In 2004, after many successful years, Dr. Schneider retired.
A certified art teacher for grades K-12 in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr. Schneider has been abundantly lauded throughout her career. In 1996, she earned the title of Outstanding Art Educator from the National Art Education Association, which followed her earlier title of Outstanding Newsletter Editor. She fondly remembers many experiences with her students, though she especially enjoyed it when she was able to prepare them to become art teachers.
Outside of her primary endeavors, Dr. Schneider has always prioritized an active civic lifestyle. In 2004, she acted as an art teacher in the Nursing Home for Residents. More recently, in 2014, she became involved with the Daughters of the American Revolution. Currently, she upholds the role of president for the Philipsburg Historical Foundation.
