Ms. Love Ligons, Principal

Hello, Welcome to our Nursery Road Website!

I am Love Ligons, Principal of Nursery Road Elementary School. I have been an educator for the past 22 years. I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina - Aiken. I received my Masters in Educational Administration and Leadership from the University of South Carolina - Columbia. 

For as long as I can remember I have loved children. They are a precious gift that I have the opportunity to celebrate each day. I count it a privilege to have a job that involves doing what is right for children. As a teacher, I was able to impart knowledge. As a Principal, I am able to support them in many more different ways. As I think of the many wonderful joys in my life, I am excited to be a part of such a wonderful faculty and staff. Our team at Nursery Road is unbelievable. Their dedication to our Champions is second to none! I truly enjoy supporting and working with each of them.  

My passions are children, teaching, and learning. For me, they are the perfect combination. Teaching children comes natural. Loving them is a passion and an honor.  

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends during my free time. I also like traveling, however, there are times a great movie and popcorn is the perfect pastime. 

With each new day and experience, I learn more about serving children and families. They are the heart of my profession and one of my purposes in life. I am thankful for every day that I can touch the life of a child.

I am truly excited and honored to be the Administrative Assistant Principal at Nursery Road Elementary. Although this will be my first year at NRES, I already feel so connected to this great school, and I find myself smiling when I proudly tell others "I am a CHAMPION"!
2019-2020 is the start of my 29th year in education and my first opportunity to work in the elementary setting since 2001.  I received my Bachelors degree in Physical Education from Winthrop University and my Masters in Educational Leadership and Supervision from Furman University. I taught elementary Physical Education and coached in Anderson County before moving into Administration in District 5 of Lexington and Richland Counties. I have served as an Administrative Assistant Principal at Crossroads Intermediate and as an Assistant Principal at Chapin Middle School. My hobbies include anything outdoors or sports related, I love the mountains, and I enjoy reading and spending time with my family.  I consider myself blessed to have the opportunity to impact the lives of children and young people in a positive way in the community where I live, and I believe there is a CHAMPION in each of us.
