Mrs. Laura Dougherty

My name is Laura Dougherty. I am married to Rick Dougherty and we have two daughters, Fowler Faye and Elsie Gray. We live on a farm in Elkmont and love spending time outside. We have three dogs that we dearly love. In my spare time, I enjoy doing my Bible devotions, playing with my girls, crafting, spending time with our animals, and relaxing on our porch. We are active members of First Baptist Church in Athens. 

I attended elementary school at Elkmont. I moved to Athens and attended Intermediate and Middle school in Athens before moving back to Elkmont and finishing my high school years. I attended Calhoun and Athens State University. I graduated in  May 2014 with my B.S. in Elementary Education. I began teaching in 2014.I love being a part of Athens City Schools and teaching 5th Grade Math and Science at AIS!!
