Welcome to Mrs. Shanklin’s class! I am so excited to be teaching your child this year. We are going to have a lot of fun while learning and growing in 3rd grade.

 Here is a little bit of information about me.


I am a native of North Carolina, having grown up in the small town of China Grove (just outside of Charlotte). I attended UNC Asheville but returned “home” to begin teaching. My husband, Taylor, and I were married in February of 2015 and began making plans to return to Asheville. After completing my Master’s Degree in Reading Education we finally moved back! In my spare time I enjoy running, reading, and playing with our Golden Retriever, Danger and Rottweiler, Tayrun (Tay-roon, long story).


In the classroom I believe students should feel “at home”. I want all students to feel confident, cared for, and comfortable. The family mentality is important to me as students learn to work together and be considerate of one another. We all have unique talents to share as leaders and goals we can meet. Through collaboration, lots of movement, and hard work, we will all grow this year. I want to work as a team with you and your child to ensure they have a successful year in 3rd grade.
