I taught English at Fillmore Central School at both the middle school and high school levels. My husband and I live in Boston, NY with our two daughters.

As an employee of Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES, I will be working in the Pioneer District 80% of the time as a Curriculum Coordinator in the Middle and High School buildings. My main office is in the Curriculum Office at the Middle School, but I can be reached via email or at 716-492-9458.

Justin Shumaker
5-12 Math Curriculum Coordinator

I grew up in the small, rural town of Woodstown, NJ. While there, I attended Rowan University where I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering with a Minor in Mathematics. Immediately following graduation, I continued my studies at Rowan and earned my Master of Science in Teaching Degree for K-12 Mathematics. 

My wife and I reside in Hinsdale, NY, and have been married since the fall of 2011. We have been members of our church's worship team since 2011 and became the worship leaders during the summer of 2019. We have a cat, 2 chinchillas, and a beautiful daughter born in September of 2018.

From September 2011 to June 2018 I taught primarily 8th grade Physics and 9-12 Math at Archbishop Walsh Academy, a small, private school located in Olean, NY. While there, I also started a fall cross country team, spring track team, and played the piano for various school events including the winter and spring concerts, musicals, and Solofest. I also taught a Statistics class for one semester at St. Bonaventure University and interned for the Town of Ellicottville Highway Department in the summers of 2016 and 2017.

As an employee of Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES, I will be working in the Pioneer District 60% of the time as a Math/Science Curriculum Coordinator focusing on grades 5-12. My office will be located at Pioneer Middle School.

Tentatively, I plan on being in district as much as I can from Tuesday through Thursday each week. However, I am always available so please don't hesitate to reach out! I am excited to continue meeting new people and furthering developing relationships with each teacher I work with. My ultimate goal is to continue helping each of our students be successful in any way I can!

I can be reached via email at this address: email, or at ext. 3208.
