• All about your teacher!
     Hello! My name is Delores Shanklin. I was born in Anchorage, Alaska, but was raised in Aiken, S.C. and Sylvania, Georgia. I graduated from Screven County High School. I am a graduate of Georgia Southern University where I obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Middle Grades Education. I later updated my certification to include Early Childhood Education and Special Education. I began teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Effingham County Middle School. After 9 years at ECMS, I began teaching 4th and 5th grade ELA and Math at Blandford. I also taught third grade for three years at Blandford. I love teaching and am happy to be teaching 4th grade again this year!
    I am married to Andy Shanklin, and we live in Sylvania, Georgia. My son Travis is 30 and is married to Amelia Gonya Rountree. They have two sons. Emmett is 6 years old and his brother Ellis is 3 years old. Needless to say, I adore my grandchildren. My younger son Garrett Rountree is 27, and he teaches 9th-12th graders Chemistry at Chongqing Depu Foreign Language School in Chongqing, China. 
     My leisure time is usually spent with family and grandchildren. My family loves outdoor activities. We enjoy boating, spending time at the beach, kayaking, and exploring the outdoors. I also really love taking photographs, so I included some outdoor photos below that I took. 
    I look forward to working with you this year in 4th Grade. :)
