Mrs. Shelby Heflin

Hello! My name is Shelby Heflin and I am so excited to teach 5th grade at Rocky Branch Elementary School. I have previously taught 3rd grade in Barrow County, as well as served as the Digital Coach to staff and students. I have a dual Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Educational Technology from the University of Florida. I have a reading endorsement, as well as a gifted endorsement. Additionally, I am a Google Certified Educator.

I was born and raised in Fort Walton Beach, FL, but moved to Leesburg, GA in high school. I moved to Athens for college and never left. I married my husband this past May and we have two dogs, Paisley and Lennon. We are currently renovating our 100-year-old home. In our free time, we love to travel to new places and take our pups hiking.

I am thrilled to grow and learn alongside your child this school year. It is my utmost priority to provide your child with a quality education while maintaining high expectations.
