Mr. Eddie Groves

Hello and welcome to my page!  

My name is Eddie Groves.  I teach 8th grade Ancient World History at Athens Middle School.  I have been teaching since 2004 and have always loved being an educator.  I have been honored to serve at wonderful schools and teach and coach incredible students at Brookhaven Middle School, Huntsville High School, James Clemens High School, Fairview High School, and Athens Middle School.  I am very excited to be a part of this wonderful school system and a new member of the Athens City Schools family.  

I am originally from Decatur, AL.  I graduated from Decatur High School in 1998.  I also attended Auburn University for my undergraduate studies and the University of West Alabama for my Masters.  My wife, Rachel, is the school counselor at Hartselle Junior High School.  We have two incredible daughters, Olivia Grace and Isabella Faith.  We also have two more daughters, our King Charles Cavalier puppies, Mille and Annie.  We live in Hartselle, AL where my wife works and daughters attend school.

The picture on this page of our family is an old one, but one of my favorites!  It was taken on July 4th, 2010.
