Auctioneers Note: James Larmore or Sheldon as he was called by most was loved by all in the local community. Sheldon was most well-known for his attributes in the local school system. In the fall of 1954, he entered Salisbury State Teachers’ College (STC), now Salisbury University (SU). After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree from STC in 1958, Sheldon accepted his first teaching job as a fifth grade teacher in the Delmar, Maryland Elementary School. After four years of teaching he was promoted to principal of Willards Elementary School. Two years later in 1964 Sheldon was named principal of the new Glen Avenue School where he served for 5 years before accepting the responsibility of the principalship of the combined Westside Primary and Westside Intermediate Schools. During this time he received his Masters Degree in School Administration and did further graduate work at the University of Maryland and the University of Delaware. In 1972, he was promoted to an elementary school supervisor. In 1975, Sheldon was named Director of Elementary Schools, a newly created position by Superintendent Harold Fulton. He served in this capacity for the next 15 years, working with a very able and supportive professional staff that he considered family. Sheldon retired from the public school system in 1990 and was invited to join the faculty of the education department at Salisbury University. He spent 10 years instructing juniors and seniors in methods of teaching and skills in classroom management. During this time he was named Maryland’s “Teacher Educator of the Year”. At SU he enjoyed his professional relationships with members of the teaching staff and nurtured lasting friendships with many of his students. Sheldon was an active member of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church until 2005 when he and his wife, Sara Belle, joined Trinity United Methodist Church. The home and outbuildings are packed to capacity and Allen & Marshall is honored to offer his estate to the general pubic at an online only auction with no minimums and no reserves.
