Dee Waddell

I am so excited to be a part of the Oconee County Elementary School Team! I am from Colquitt, GA, and I have taught for the past seven years in the Decatur County School System. My husband, Greg, and I both attended the University of Georgia, and always aspired to return to the Athens area to live out our retirement. This year we became empty nesters, so we decided it was the perfect time to fulfill this dream and make our home in the DAWG Nation!
Greg and I have a son, Perry, and a daughter, Ashley, attending UGA.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, going to movies, traveling, and of course, cheering on the dawgs.

I have a passion for teaching, and the excitement in the eyes of my students when they learn and grow is what drives me! I believe every child is unique in the way they learn, and I strive to create learning environments that promote each students' talents and successes.

I can't wait to see what this year has in store! I know it is going to be amazing!
