PreK Assistant

Mrs. Shoemaker earned a Bachelor of Science in Education and a Master of Science in Communicative Disorders from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She served as the president of the UW chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association while in graduate school. She practiced as a speech language pathologist in the public schools for twenty-one years. Most recently, she worked for the Oak Grove School District, in Green Oaks, for thirteen years serving children from preschool to 8th grade. Prior to moving to Illinois, she was in California where she worked closely with the California State Preschools and the Head Start program in Escondido. In Wisconsin, she worked in a K-5 public school, as well as contractual work with United Cerebral Palsy in their Birth-Three Connections and Respite Care programs, and for UW-Madison, mentoring undergraduate and graduate students studying speech and language pathology. In 2013, she took a break from teaching to focus on her family and to volunteer in her son’s school and in the community. She served as the coordinator of a preschool mom’s group and volunteered in the children’s ministry at church. Currently, she volunteers in the nursery at church to get her baby fix J. She lives in Green Oaks with her husband, Alex, their 16-year-old daughter, Cate, their 8-year-old son, Clayton, and their dog and cat, Brady and Ally. Their 19-year-old daughter, Cecilia, is a sophomore at Penn State University. Jenni enjoys reading, animals, traveling, Bible studies, watching college and professional sports, and spending time with family and friends.
