Mrs. Valerie Raines
It has been my pleasure to serve as a Language Arts and Social Studies teacher for over 20 years. I began my teaching career in Virginia as a high school English and GED prep instructor. I moved to Charlotte in 1997, where I taught middle school for 15 years with Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. I transferred to Cabarrus County in 2012, and I am extremely proud to serve as an educator in my home community of Harrisburg. I am certified as a Highly Qualified teacher in both Social Studies and Language Arts. I look forward to an exciting and successful year here at Hickory Ridge Middle!!
