A Little More About Mr. Priest

I have a younger sister, Layla Davis, that attends Athens High School. I enjoy playing/watching sports. I love football and basketball (WAR EAGLE, GO SAINTS, GO SPURS GO!) I became a teacher because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of young people. I wanted to be the teacher in school that I always needed. I love seeing my students perform in and out of the classroom.
