Emily Shoda

My name is Emily Shoda and I am honored to be the new Kindergarten and First Grade teacher at Faith Christian Academy. My family and I have lived in Columbia City my entire life. My parents are David and Jennifer Wilder. They have been two of my biggest supporters. My grandpa, Bill Wilder, plays the biggest role in my love of education. He continually supports me in any way possible, and shares the love of education.

I grew up attending Trinity Church and spent a lot of time with my church family. I spent more than 10 summers at Brook Cherith Camp and this is where I first gave my life to Christ. I graduated from CCHS in 2014 and Huntington University in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Special Education: Mild Intervention. I am engaged and will be getting married to Curtis Shoda, in November of this year. We are so excited to begin our lives together.

I am looking forward to getting to know the staff and students at FCA. God has led me here and we are going to be a great fit together.
