Schneider is a character in Jesse's Lost Journal.

He was a Physical Education teacher at Springwood High School in Springwood, Ohio. He is the secondary antagonist of the second film and book as well as a victim of Freddy Krueger.


While the events depicted in Jesse's Lost Journal are not part of the series timeline or canon, Mark Patton (who played Jesse Walsh in A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge) wrote a string of events that he believes could go down in history as "what really happened." Following the timeline of the film series, the events we see in Freddy's Revenge take place in 1986, while the events described in Jesse's diary are mentioned as occurring in 1982 and 1985.

Schneider is a recurring character in Jesse's journals, he was very present in the first entries when Jesse commented on how the coach saw him and Ron with different eyes. He describes that, when the coach sent him and Ron to the showers, he could see that he was watching them both naked from his office while stroking his balls. Jesse goes to the trouble of even mentioning a relationship with footballs and balls as if they were some kind of Freudian trauma.

On the night that Jesse arrives at Don's Place, he said that it was a "gay place" where many people who liked sadomasochism, among other things, used to go. It is when Jesse pours himself a glass of beer that Schneider arrives and stops him, pushes him into his car and drives him to school.

When Freddy kills Schneider in the bathroom, he comments that he was terrified by what he just witnessed but that he knew that Schneider was a bad person who had hurt many children. Even Jesse shows irony when his friends worry about Sunday's party at Lisa's house when only hours ago they had learned of the professor's murder.

It is known that, in addition to being bound with jump ropes and then torn apart by Freddy's claws, a stick was then inserted into his butt and that is how the police found him (in fact, that was the reason why there was no arduous investigation because it was believed that Scheneider had been dating a person and that, in the attempt to practice BDSM, there was an accident and he died).


Schneider is a man of few words and when he decides to open his mouth it is only to give orders. He became violent towards Jesse when he found him in Don's Place and then forced him to run around the PE room.

Between the lines it could be said that he is a pervert who likes sadomasochistic games.

Physical appearance[]

Schneider is introduced as a forty-year-old man who maintains his figure by being a physical education coach. He has blonde hair that turns honey-colored depending on the light, and blue eyes. His height is similar to that of his students.


Ron Grady[]

He is usually too severe with Ron but more with Jesse, that is why when he discovers them both fighting he sends them to do an exercise routine that was a total abuse of power. He repeated the same command when he overheard him and Jesse taunting him in the locker room.

Jesse Walsh[]

It's with Jesse that you see the most complex student-teacher dynamics. When a ball hit Jesse's head, instead of looking out for his well-being, all he did was speak bad terms to him.

According to Ron, Schneider likes cute boys like Jesse, that's why between the lines it can be deduced that he doesn't seem to be a good coach for boys because of the type of verbal and physical violence (the scene that pushes Jesse against the chairs) that he exerts on his students. It was Schneider who seemed to have bad intentions towards Jesse that night he found him at the Don's Place, however this is questionable because Freddy kills him first.


  • Most of the adults Freddy kills in the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series are either among those who burned him to death or were helping the teenage characters. Schneider was definitely not helping the teenage characters.
