Dr. Jaqueline Shoemaker
Hello! I'm Jaqueline Shoemaker and I am living my dream of being a 1st grade teacher! I have taught for 27 years with the last 12 being here at OCPS. My prior experiences include teaching Kindergarten in Dekalb, Rockdale, Baldwin county schools, and also in an International Baccalaureate (IB) school overseas.
I am originally from Singapore but have now lived longer here, in the USA, than in my home country! I have a wonderful husband and we are very blessed with a son and 3 daughters who have all graduated from Oconee and are either alumni of or are current students at UGA.
Teaching is my calling and it is an honor to be a part of OCPS. It is a humbling gift to spend each day helping children learn and blossom to reach and/or exceed their potential. No other job offers this privilege and I am very thankful for this blessing!
