Ms. Shannon Blair
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be your child’s 4th grade teacher here at Shiloh Point. This will be my 15th year of teaching. I received my bachelors and masters degrees in Early Childhood Education from Florida State University. In addition, I hold an Educational Specialist degree in Teaching and Learning from Valdosta State University. I am a wife and proud mommy of 2 little boys, Peyton (8) and Jackson (5), who both keep me on my toes. I really enjoy traveling, baking, Broadway musicals and watching my boys play sports.
My number one goal as an educator is to help my students or kiddos as I call them, become successful, life long learners. I feel this can be accomplished by building strong lines of communication between myself, students and families. I am looking forward to an amazing year filled lots of growth and memorable experiences.

I am beyond thrilled to be part of the fourth grade team at Shiloh Point Elementary School. I fell in love with this school community and staff. It is truly an honor to be part of a group comprised of stellar teachers! I received my Bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of South Carolina. I also obtained a Master’s degree in early childhood education from the University of Georgia. I love the SEC! My previous teaching experiences are in Lexington County as well as Gwinnett County. I am passionate about being a continuous learner so that I can support and strengthen my students in variety of ways. Being a teacher has been a childhood dream since I was seven years old! I received early practice with my stuffed animals, served as a Sunday School teacher, and tutored ESOL students. I love learning and teaching with all of my students! Each student is beautifully unique. I am passionate and dedicated in making learning relevant, engaging, and fun for all. There is so much magic that happens in the classroom and being part of that is indescribable! During my free time, I love crafting, chasing around my two dogs, traveling, and working a skincare business as well. Along with supporting and collaborating with other teachers, I am excited to work with your child and partner with you in their learning journey!

I am a graduate of Michigan State University with twenty-four years of teaching experience. I have taught many different grade levels, and I am continually amazed at how unique each experience is. All in all, inspiring students to learn and be self directed is my favorite part!
Ms. Sue Madore
I'm so excited to be working with your child. Fourth grade is an exciting time to learn and grow. I look forward to helping your child during this important transitional year. I am originally from New Jersey - the daughter of two school teachers. I graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Economics and went on to obtain my CPA. After working in the corporate world for several years, I left to start a family. It was during this time with my children that I discovered my desire to teach. With two parents being teachers, I guess it's always been in my blood! I went back to school to Brenau University to get my teachers certification and feel that I have truly found my calling. I've been at Shiloh Point since it opened in 2006.

Shiloh Point is a loving community-driven school, and I am lucky to be a part of the place to BE. My passion for education and working with children began as a summer camp counselor and blossomed into a love for educating others. Personally, my favorite part of teaching is building relationships with my students and watching them grow as learners over the year!
