Ms. Holly Hargrove

Hello! My name is Holly Hargrove. This is my sixth year teaching first grade. I graduated from Athens High School in 2004 then completed my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education at Athens State University in 2012.

I love working at HEART Academy at Julian Newman 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, the Grease Festival, the Earth Day Celebration, and the Limestone County Rodeo. I enjoy reading, hiking, and cooking. I have two wonderful children that attend Athens High School and Athens Middle School. You can find me at every AHS football game cheering on our Golden Eagles football team and "The Pride of Athens" Marching Band. I have two cats named Nala and Addy.
