Mistie Waters

I have taught middle grades ELA since 2000. I did my undergrad at UGA, and I have a master’s and a specialist degree in education.  I started my teaching career in Gwinnett County and moved to Carrollton City Schools for much of my career before returning home to Athens to teach in Jackson County before settling in at Oconee County Schools. I've taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade ELA and social studies over the years, and I am passionate about helping kids find joy in reading.  I have three children, and we all yell, “GOOOOO DAWGS!”
