Mrs. Ellie Lovvorn

Hi! This is my 17th year of teaching elementary school. I am the Title I teacher at HEART Academy at Julian Newman Elementary School. Title I allows me to work with students with a precscribed intervention for reading or math instructon in a small group setting. I am also part of of the SST, which is the Student Support Team. This team works to track students progress and set goals for instruction. Parent Involvement is also part of what I do at JNES. We love to have parents involved and volunteer at school. Email me if you would like to be on a committee or help us!!

I am originally from Nashville, TN and graduated from The University of Tennessee with a Masters degree in Education. I moved to Athens in 2005 with my husband, Jeb Lovvorn. We have two children that attended JNES and now AMS. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to check out some materials to help your child at home.
