Mrs. Melissa Shoemaker

I am from a long line of educators. My mom taught at our neighborhood school, and I often visited my grandmother while she worked at the district office. Teaching is in my blood and is my passion. 


I grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana in the heart of Cajun country.  I enjoyed playing sports and traveling with my brother and parents.  We spent many Thanksgivings at Walt Disney World where I fell in love with Mickey Mouse and even enjoyed working on Main Street as part of the Disney College Program. 

I am married to my college sweetheart, John, and we have enjoyed living in Sienna for many years.  My boys attended SCE and we have wonderful memories of them being Navigators. John Michael is 18 and will graduate in May.  My twins, Nick and Jake, are in 8th grade at Thornton and look forward to being Ridge Point Panthers next year.


When I’m not at school, you can find me traveling to the beach, seeing a good movie, or watching my favorite sport, football.  My family enjoys camping and anything outdoors. The boys love playing football and participate in shooting sports. I love being in the stands cheering for their teams and those of my students.
