Hi! My Name is Mr. Shannon Sanders. I live in Jeffersonville Georgia, Twiggs County.  My wife, Laura Sanders, is also a teacher. She teaches 5th grade in Laurens County. We have one daughter, Lane. She is in the 5thgrade this year.  She is a horse nut! I grew up in Cochran, Georgia which is a very rural community.  We had horses and spent a lot time riding and showing horses. I was very active in 4-H and FFA. I also grew up fishing and hunting which I still enjoy today.
