Mr. Shewmaker - Science

I have been teaching for 14 years. My first year was 4thgrade and all the rest 6th grade science. I have been married to Linda for 28 years. We have three sons, two daughters in law, and three grandchildren. I live on a farm and work there when not teaching science. By the way……….Science RULES!!!!!!!! In my spare time, I like to grow plants, take care of animals and chase eclipses.



Ms. Halterman - Geography/Social Studies

I have been teaching for 20 years, and this is my fourth year in Jerome Schools! I have taught 6th through 12th grade, Dual Enrollment, and College courses.

I have three children, one who lives back in Virginia. In my spare time, I like to travel, hike the Snake River Canyon, and do Animal Rescue.

Of all the places I have been, Jerome is my favorite! I love the community, the kids, and the school.

Go Tigers!

Mrs. Myers - Mathematics

Welcome everyone! I was born and raised in Jerome, and was able to join the Jerome Middle School team last year. This will be my first year teaching 6th grade math, but I am excited to join the team this year. I have been married for five years to my high school sweetheart. I have four fur babies, two cats, a dog, and a horse.

Some of the hobbies that I enjoy are most outdoor activities such as, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, and hiking. I also enjoy gardening and writing stories. However, my biggest hobby is that I am huge bookworm.



Mr. Manuel - ELA

First of all, let me just say that I am excited to have a new class of students this year. I love teaching and reading is one of my passions. My family hails from Maine and we like to go there once in a blue moon to see the coast. I love to read a good book and a long drawn out series of books is even better. I like to camp and I find Idaho to be a beautiful place that offers many opportunities for outdoor adventures. I look forward to seeing students succeed in life and I am privileged to be a part of that journey.




Mrs. Mangum - English Language Arts


Hello! Welcome to 6th grade RED TEAM!

I am excited to be joining the red team this year and starting a new journey in 6th grade! I was previously teaching 4th grade, until I decided to make the jump to MiDdLe ScHoOl! :)

After being born and raised in Jerome, and pursuing my career here, I guess you could say I am a true Jerome-ite! Go Tigers!

The sunshine and outdoors truly do call my name; unless water is involved, and then I am not interested! I enjoy mountain biking, golfing, hiking, and laying in my hammock. I also spend my time reading books, watching Netflix, and taking naps. I have been married for a little over 2 years and have 2 dogs and a cat who are all awfully spoiled!

I am so excited to be at Jerome Middle School this year teaching Reading and Language Arts! Reading and Writing are two of my favorite school subjects and I enjoy sharing these passions with students.
