Schorlemmer History 

Ella Schorlemmer was born in San Marcos, Texas on November 8, 1916. She received her college degree from what was then known as Southwest Texas State College and started teaching in San Ysidro. Mrs. Schorlemmer moved to Mission Valley and taught grades 1 through 5 in a one-room school house. She also cooked lunch for the students. 

After teaching in that one-room school house, she began teaching at Mission Valley.  Mrs. Schorlemmer also taught at Juan Linn Elementary.  She was a prinicipal at Guadalupe Elementary.  When a counseling program was created, she became the first elementary school counselor in VISD.

She retired in 1982, after 27 years in VISD, and a total of 42 years in teaching and counseling. Her dedication to not only VISD, but to the students, made her the remarkable woman that she was. Ella Schorlemmer passed away on October 19, 2011.
