Mr. Todd Shoemaker

I was born and raised in Bradley County and I am extremely proud to call Cleveland my home. I am married to Tina Shoemaker who teaches at Prospect Elementary. Tina and I have two wonderful children Ashley and Clay. We attend First Baptist Church here in Cleveland.

I began my career in education as a School Resource Officer for Bradley County Sheriffs Department at Trewhitt Jr. High School. During that time I gained a love for education and decided that at some point I wanted to teach. I was blessed to begin my teaching career at Bradley Central teaching Criminal Justice for seven years. I then had the privilege of serving as the Principal of Taylor Elementary School for 3 years. I have served as the Principal of Bradley Central High School for the past 10 years. I am proud to be part of one of the best school systems in the state of Tennessee and to work with tremendous teachers and students.

I love serving as the Principal of Bradley Central High School and look forward to an exciting year. Bradley Central celebrated it's 101st graduating class the spring of 2017. Bradley has a long tradition of excellence in education. On behalf of the teachers and staff, I would like to welcome you to Bradley Central High School.

Go Bears!
