Mr. Nick Looney

Hello and welcome to iAcademy!

I was born and raised right here in Limestone County, where I graduated from Athens High School and Athens State University. I love our town and all it has to offer! Watching my mother's passion for teaching and the impact she had on her students made me want to follow in her footsteps. After graduating from ASU, I began my teaching career in Madison City Schools for one year before coming home to Athens City. I have worked at Athens Intermediate School, Athens Middle School, and I'm so excited to now call Athens Elementary my home! This faculty is truly one of a kind and we all love and support one another.

My wife Magen and I have a 1 year old daughter and a little boy on the way this school year. We love to travel, spend time with family, and binge-watch shows on Netflix and Amazon. I enjoy playing golf, mowing the grass, and watching football (Roll Tide and Go Eagles!). I love summer, but winter is my favorite season. I like at least one "big snow" per year and I'm just like a kid when it comes to building a snowman. 

It is an honor to give back to my community by serving as Assistant Principal here at iAcademy. I hope to make a difference for our kids every day, whatever it takes!
