Mrs. Melissa Schwab, long-time English teacher at NHHS, will not be returning next year. Her family is moving away from this area over the summer. She will soon begin earning her doctorate while working as a full time CrossFit coach.
Mrs. Schwab is a cherished teacher at New Haven High, always willing to help students and bring on new ideas.
Mrs. Schwab has been a teacher at New Haven High school since 2002. She moved to this area because her husband was transferred here for work.
Before Mrs. Schwab came to New Haven, she was an English teacher at Leopold High School, where she was the only English teacher, and the school had about 90 kids.

By Rosalie Laune:
In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below
We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
This poem was written in 1915 by Major John McCrae, a physician serving in a Canadian artillery unit during World War I. It is believed he wrote it after conducting a burial service for a young Canadian artillery officer who was killed in the Second Battle of Ypres in Belgium.
