My name is Amy Priest. I am entering my 22nd year of teaching and spent the first 21 years in Cherokee County. I love to help students become better readers and writers. I have taught kindergarten through sixth in various capacities. The majority of my experience was that of a homeroom teacher, but I also served as a special education teacher, ESOL teacher, and interventionist.
My husband Jeff and I reside in Ball Ground with our 3 children. My son Trevor recently graduated Creekview and will be attending college this fall. I have two daughters, Anna who will be in 8th grade and Abigail who will be in 7th grade. Both girls will attend Pickens Junior High.
I am excited to be joining the staff of Jasper Middle School and can’t wait to work with your students this school year.
