Principal's Message

My name is Todd Shoemaker and this is my 22nd year in Education, 15th as an administrator, and my first year working in the Northwest School District.   I've heard a lot of good things about this district and the Middle School.  I'm excited to be working in Southern Ohio again.  My wife and  I live in Pike County with my two boys, Payton (16) & Dawson (14), and her two daughters Olivia (14) and Hadlee (11).  I hope to get to know each student, staff member, and community member personally.  I know that is a challenging task but I strongly believe in the importance of relationships.  I don't like to make promises I can't keep but I willl promise you these two things:  1) I will be here (I hate to miss school) and care about your child/children and 2) I will make all decisions as though I am making them for my own kids that I mentioned above and with them I like to think that I am firm but fair.   I look forward to meeting you and I look forward to a great year here at Northwest Middle School.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to stop in or call. GO MOHAWKS!
