Lovett reflects on changes in public education
Recession has been biggest challenge
Lee Lovett has seen a lot of changes in the school system during his years of working with the Hall County district.
When Lee Lovett started his first teaching job in 1965, he couldn’t have imagined the way public schools would change over the course of his career. Lovett, who is now deputy superintendent in charge of finance for the Hall County School System, began teaching within a month of graduating from college. “I went into the classroom and they handed me a cigar box that had in it a key to the room and 32 lunch tickets,” he said.
