Jeromy Shaw

Stunt & Tumble Coach

I am currently continuing my education by working toward obtaining my Ed.S. in Special Education. My end goal is to become a college professor and enrich the lives of the younger generations pursuing degrees in special education. In May 2016, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Special Education/ Collaborative K-12 from The University of West Alabama. While attending UWA, I served as captain and later an assistant coach for the UWA Cheerleaders. I also completed my Master’s Degree in Special Education/ Collaborative K-12 from Mississippi College. I am apart of the Universal Cheerleading Association. I get to travel the world and work cheerleading camps as well as doing choreography for different teams in our nation. I have coached all-star cheerleading for 6 years levels 1-5. I love all things cheerleading, and I specialize in school team choreography, coed stunting, try-out prepping, and tumbling. I am excited to be a part of the ACE Tribe!
