Hello! My name is Holly Hargrove. This is my 9th year teaching first grade.

I love working at HEART Academy and collaborating with our fun, energetic staff. I hope you feel the warmth and family like atmosphere when you walk through the doors. I believe all children can learn when provided with a positive, safe environment filled with laughter.

I am an Athens native and I am very proud of our town! I enjoy attending our local events that our town hosts such as The Fiddler's Convention and the Earth Day Celebration. I enjoy concerts, hiking and exploring the outdoors, reading, and being with family and friends. I have two wonderful and talented children that attend Athens High School. You can find me at AMS and AHS football games cheering on our Golden Eagles football team and "The Pride of Athens" Marching Band. I have two cats named Nala and Addy. I am currently studying online with The University of North Alabama to obtain a Master's Degree in Elementary Education.
