Meet Your School Counselor

Sam Schoonover - 6th Grade


My name is Sam Schoonover, and I am the 6th Grade School Counselor at Saeger Middle School in the Francis Howell School District.  This is my fifth year as a school counselor and my fourth year at Saeger!  I love being part of an educational team that strives to support students in developing a positive self-concept to become confident learners and leaders in our community.  I hold a Masters degree in both School and Professional Counseling from Lindenwood University.  In my free time, I love to watch movies; read; play tennis or pickle ball; and spend time with my friends, family, and my fur baby.

I look forward to connecting with Saeger students and families!  If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me by email at or by phone at 636-851-5489.
