Mr. Shoemaker

1st Grade- Mr. Shoemaker


Welcome to Room #113

Greetings Northrop Community,

My name is Mr. Shoemaker, Mr. Shoe, and I teach first grade in room 113. This is my sixteenth year at Northrop and my thirteenth teaching grade 1. I previously taught environmental education as Northrop’s School Naturalist. Prior to that, I taught environmental education for many years at Wargo Nature Center in Lino Lakes. 

I have a Masters of Education degree from St. Thomas and am licensed for K-6th grade elementary education. My wife Nancy and I live in South Minneapolis.  Our older daughter Avery lives and works in Toronto and our younger daughter Marlena attends college at Appalachian State College in Boone, North Carolina.

Besides basic math and literacy, we do a lot of science, art, and singing in our class. First grade students need and love frequent movement, so I employ a lot of active, hands-on learning. I feel fortunate to be at Northrop and love working with first grade students. I  invite you to visit my classroom.
