Degrees and Certifications:
Dr. Valerie McGahee
Greetings everyone, I am Valerie McGahee and I am very excited to be a member of the inaugural staff of Aiken Intermediate School. I come to you as a 30 year veteran educator, who most recently retired from the Richmond County School System. While in Richmond County I served in a variety positions, including assistant principal and principal. It is exciting to return to my first love of teaching middle school students. Excitement for me abounds, as I return to teaching 6th grade English Language Arts. I have attended the University of Georgia, Augusta University, and South Carolina State University, earning undergraduate and graduate degrees. I am a native Augustan, a graduate of Aquinas High School. My pride and joy is my one son who is a junior Chemistry major at Benedict College in Columbia. I am active in my church, Mt. Vernon Baptist Church, where I am a member of the Trustee Board, the Kitchen Ministry, and the Music and Arts Ministry. I am also an active member of my sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha. I enjoy cooking, reading, traveling and spending time with friends. I look forward to a wonderful year of teaching and learning with the students and staff of Aiken Intermediate School.
