• Principal

    Kate Schoen

         Welcome to the Round Top-Carmine Elementary School official website.  I am very

         blessed to be starting this school year as your new principal.  I come to Round Top

         after twelve years as a principal in College Station.  Before that I taught grades 4

         through 12, and taught education classes at Texas A & M.  I retired in 2013, but my

         passion for children did not retire with me.  I feel so fortunate that Round Top-Carmine

         ISD was looking for an elementary principal when I realized I needed to come back

         into the schools.  I believe in our children, and I look forward to working with you and

         your children this year.  Feel free to contact me if you have questions.  I hope to get to

         know each of you as the year progresses.

                            Be safe,

                            Kate Schoen


  • Counselor


     Monica Fricke


    Monica Fricke

    I am so excited to be the school counselor for the Round Top-Carmine ISD! I graduated from the University of Houston in 2008 and began my teaching career in Brenham, Texas. While teaching in Brenham I completed my Masters degree in School Counseling. I also spent time in Waller ISD and gained some incredible experience there. However, I could not pass up the opportunity to be a part of the Round Top-Carmine community where my children would soon begin their education. You'll see them with me at many school functions and events cheering on our Cubs & Cubettes! 

    My husband was born and raised in this amazing community that we've called home since we married in 2009. I love that I am able to be a part of the school that he attended growing up.

    School counseling has brought such a passion to my life. There is no better feeling than helping others and giving them the tools to overcome obstacles we face in our everyday lives.  I am here to provide support in academic achievement, personal/social development, and college/career readiness. I promise to treat each and every child as my own and guide them down a path that will open as many opportunities for them to experience a successful future.

    I look forward to this year and what it has in store for each of us!
    Go Cubs & Cubettes!
