Michelle Emmons

Center Director
Michelle joined the Mathnasium family in the summer of 2018 upon the opening of the Fort Myers location. She has a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and has taught for approximately 20 years in public schools in Indiana and Southwest Florida. Some of her favorite activities are spending time with her family and pets, reading, and doing crafts. She is a wonderful storyteller and keeps those around her constantly entertained and laughing. If you ever have a moment ask her about her role as a bird-ninja. She also keeps her center well fed and has the best stash of snacks. She strives to bring mathematical confidence and understanding to all students in the Fort Myers area!


Judy is a graduate of Purdue University. She has a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a second major in math. For the past 27 years, she has taught in Elementary Schools. Math was always Judy's favorite subject and she likes to spread her enthusiasm for it with others.

She works for our @home platform, and enjoys sharing her love of math with others!


Shaun is technically almost a senior...senior citizen! With over 15 years in the field of education, Shaun has taught in both the private and public sectors and enjoys helping students not just understand math, but understand they can be their own best cheerleader.

Our Mathnasium Mission

Teach children math so they understand it, master it, and love it. Math can change their lives, and they can change the world.

What I love about Mathnasium is the ability to teach problem-solving skills and make math make sense, while also making a student smile.
