About Me...

    Louvre This is a photo of me at the Louvre in Paris in Feb. 2020. I take students to Europe every year! 


    My name is Valerie Withers and this is my 16th year at Ola High School. I have previously taught in Fayette and Henry Counties. I have a  Master's Degree in Literacy and Learning through Walden University and I earned my Bachelor's of Education from The University of Georgia in 2003.
    I have taught all levels of high school English-- and I've even tried my luck in middle school. I am currently the AP Literature & Composition teacher and teach British Literature. 
    In my free time, I enjoy working out, traveling the world with my students, reading novels, baking breads and spending time with my amazing family: my husband, Jason, my three girls, Emerson, Elliott and Everette, and my dog, John Hamish Watson. 
    I'm currently reading Hamet Maggie O'Ferrel and Exit West by Mohsin Hamid.
