Counselor's Corner


Welcome to UMS-Wright! My name is Blair Schoenvogel. This is my 19th year as an educator and my 14th year at UMS-Wright Preparatory School. My husband Dietrich and I have two children. Mac is in the Seventh Grade and Henri is in Third Grade.

I attended Birmingham-Southern College for my undergraduate degree in Collaborative Elementary Education. I taught first grade for ten years before going into counseling. I received my Masters in School Counseling from The University of Alabama Birmingham.

I provide a variety of services to our children, parents, teachers and staff here at UMS-Wright.  These services include but are not limited to: Individual Counseling, Small Group Counseling, Classroom Guidance Lessons (Wright Way), Observations, 4th Grade Safety Patrol, and Parent/Teacher Conferences. This year we will continue to focus on being “Bucket Fillers.” We will also add a new component to our Wright Way Class. We will work on making “Miles of Smiles.” Each child will have the opportunity to document their acts of kindness on a slip of paper.  We will connect all of the slips of paper to make Miles of Smiles at UMS-Wright. At the end of the year, we will measure how many Smiles we helped place on the faces of others at our School and in our community. We will work as a school community to be inclusive and connected through, games, strategies, and role-plays.  Specific skills we will focus on are making eye contact, garnering skills for starting a conversation and reaching out to others who feel left out or alone.

I look forward to working with all of you throughout the year. Thank you for sharing your children with me! Please feel free to contact me at 470-9054 or with any questions or concerns.
