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!
