Hi! My name is Mr. Arick Shankles. This is my 2nd year teaching at Jemison High School and am proud to be a part of the Jaguar family. I was born and raised in Scottsboro, Alabama and graduated in 2015 from Muscle Shoals High School. I was a 4x AHSAA Wrestling State Champion and I wrestled NCAA D1 in college. I am currently working on my master's degree in Educational Leadership. I am a middle child to two brothers, Tyler and Brennen, and I also have 3 dogs: Chip, Cooper, and Duke; as well as a cat, Tobi. In my free time I like to watch and coach sports, play video and board games with my friends, read books, travel, and make music. This year I will be teaching Driver's Education and Career Preparedness courses. I am also the Head Baseball Coach and Assistant Wrestling Coach. More importantly, I am excited to continue to change lives at Jemison!
