Mr. Andrew Williams - 7th Grade English Language Arts

About Mr. Williams:

Hello! I am very excited to be a Knight and to be teaching with Team Honor! This is my 2nd year teaching at Apple Valley Middle.

This is my 18th year as a teacher. Prior to teaching at The Valley, I taught at Rugby Middle. I have been a reading specialist and also taught 6th-grade Language Arts and Social Studies before coming to teach 7th-grade ELA at Apple Valley. I earned my teaching license in Elementary Education from UNC-Asheville in 2000. I earned my National Board Certification in 2007, and also hold two other teaching licenses: Reading K-12 and Middle School Social Studies (6-9).

My wife, daughter Emily, and I love living in this community and feel blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world. I look forward to working with you and your child this year.
