• School Closings/Delays: After consulting with EMA and the County Commissioners Office regarding the weather conditions, our Laurens County Schools will be closed 2/19/2020. Continued rain deems the roads hazardous for our buses to travel. Employees are to report to work from 9am-3pm. If a staff member’s road conditions are unsafe or other extenuating circumstances arise, please consult with your principal/building supervisors.

Welcome to Third Grade at NWLE!  I began my teaching career in 2006 and have taught 3rd Grade all of those years. I previously worked for Georgia State Patrol and Georgia Department of Corrections..  At the  age of 43, I returned to school to complete my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood, a Master's Degree in Educational Technology, and Gifted Certification.  

I am married to Rod Waites, and we live in Dexter.  We have 3 grown daugthers-Katie, Heather, and Morgan. We also have twin grandchildren-Bo and Hadden.  When I have spare time, I enjoy reading, shopping, watching football (GO DAWGS!!!!) and visiting friends.  I look forward to a great year and the many wonders of 3rd grade!
