Jim Schuldenberg

Name: James (Jim) J. Schuldenberg
Jim Schuldenberg's 63 years have been centered around the community in which he grew up: Menomonee Falls.Schuldenberg's name was recently placed on the "Wall of Recognition" at Menomonee Falls High School , an acknowledgment of alumni who have given outstanding service to others.He was honored "based on his outstanding achievement as a student and his career but more so on his willingness to give back to the community of the greater Menomonee Falls area."
Schuldenberg said his parents were married in 1930 and owned 30 acres near the local Ponderosa Restaurant.His family farmed the land.
"We were the last street light out of the village," he recalled.
After attending St. Mary Elementary School, he went to Menomonee Falls High School.He met his wife, Mary, at St. Mary, when she transferred there in eighth grade.
Schuldenberg and Mary made Menomonee Falls their home, and he taught in the Menomonee Falls school district for 36 years.He began at Oakwood Elementary School teaching fifth grade and was a teaching assistant principal.Later he also taught fifth graders at Riverside Elementary School.During many summers, he taught math and language to middle school students.In the latter part of his career, Schuldenberg moved to Benjamin Franklin Elementary School to teach fourth grade, eventually becoming the associate principal.
"It was a give back to the community for all it's given me," he said of his teaching.
He retired in 2002, but is now part of the faculty at Cardinal Stritch University, where he supervises student teachers.
Once Schuldenberg has observed his student teachers four times and they are on the road to becoming certified, he gives each one a small gift bag with a toy "Hot Wheels" , all teachers want a new car, he said , pens and a parable about teaching, which includes the Beatitudes.
As a lifelong member of St. Mary Parish, Schuldenberg is active as an extraordinary minister of holy Communion.He also was one of the people instrumental in changing the outdoor festival at St. Mary into an inside "Feastival," held each October.When the neighbors, who lived just adjacent to the parish grounds, started complaining about the summer festival being too noisy, the pastor at that time called on Schuldenberg and others to see if they could resolve the problem.They came up with the "Feastival" idea.
"We billed it as camaraderie, fellowship and family reunions," said Schuldenberg, who was involved with the event for at least 12 years.
Schuldenberg volunteers with the Boy Scouts of America.He started as a den leader when his son, Jim, was in second grade.He recalled "just being an adult role model to let youth accomplish and grow into what they can be is what the community needs."
In the last 19 years, he has become advancement chairman for the Boy Scouts in the Menomonee Falls area, as well as Germantown, Arrowhead and the Sussex-Hamilton School districts.
One thing with which he has seen scouts struggle is the requirement that they be "reverent."
"I tell them you don't have to be real pious, but you need to tell me you believe in a Supreme Being , God," he said.
He also tells them that he has chats with God.
"Anything you do, do the best you can.I think you try to have chats with God.This happens to me all the time with a lot of quiet time," he noted.
