Laurie Varner

Hello! This is Laurie Varner, first grade teacher at High Shoals Elementary. I’ve been teaching in the Atlanta and Athens areas since 1991. My passion is early literacy, and I love incorporating children’s literature and writing into all parts of the day. I am involved in the long process of renovating one of the High Shoals Manufacturing Company’s original mill houses, right over the river in Walton County. I’m just a hop, skip and a jump from the Apalachee River, where I like to cool down in the summertime.
