Mrs. Angie Willis
Hi. My name is Angie Willis, and I am glad to be a teacher at Athens High School.
The 2017-2018 school year is my 24th year in public education. I have been at Athens High School since January 2008. Prior to that, I taught at Sparkman 9th Grade School and Sparkman High School (both in Madison County) and Holt High School (in Tuscaloosa County).
In 1993 during my first year of teaching, I married my husband, Greg, and we have two beautiful daughters--Lauren, a 2016 AHS graduate, and Anna Grace, a sophomore at AHS. When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, watching college football, and working in my flowerbeds.
I believe that teaching is a calling, not a job or career. I also believe that all students can learn and that it is my responsibility to create engaging and relevant learning experiences each day. I want to motivate students to experience repeated learning success. I also believe that all students are accountable for their learning and that I can help them engage in this learning process by providing them with skills such as how to study, take notes, and express themselves effectively.
