Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Laurie Viers
My name is Mrs. Viers. This will be my fifth year as a teacher in the Athens City School District. Prior to teaching in Athens City, I taught in the Madison City School District. I began my career in Virginia teaching in the same school system in which I attended school as a child. I have taught first grade, fifth grade, Title I and Special Education. I recently graduated from the University of Alabama Birmingham with my Education Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership. I hold a Master’s of Science degree in Special Education and Educational Leadership. I also hold a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education. I enjoy teaching students with special abilities and count myself blessed to learn more from my students than they learn from me each day.
I live just outside of Athens City with my family. I have been married for 25 years. I have 2 children, a grandbaby, a cat, a dog and 2 horses. I attend church in Athens and enjoy serving the community through my church. I love serving the community of Athens. It feels like home! Although I have little time for hobbies, I do enjoy playing the saxophone and would like to find time to rejoin the community band in which I was a member for several years.
