Kourtney Shoemaker

Social Science Mentor


I was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, but lived for 1 year in Argentina and have also spent time in Los Angeles.

Teaching is a second career for me. I decided to go back to school to teach secondary education because I wanted to share my love for learning and help students prepare for the future. I am naturally inquisitive and enjoy learning about how events from the past affect today’s modern world.

Roles at Quest Forward Academy

I am a social science mentor for all of the Foundation Phase students this year. I’m excited to help first-year students learn about World History. I also co-teach Social Science for Foundation Phase 1 students with mentor Ed Vogel. I am also one of the co-sponsors for Crafting Club.
