One afternoon during Warrior Time, Mrs. Schools’ class was asked what teacher the newspaper staff should highlight for this edition. The answer was a resounding, “Mrs. Lovick,” so this week, our Warrior Spotlight is on Mrs. Lovick, an English teacher here at Henrico High School.


  • Where are you from?

“I was born in Summersville, West Virginia; my family moved to Mechanicsville, Maryland when I was 4, and I was raised there. I came to Richmond for college.”

  • What are your dreams?

“It has always been a dream to be a full-time volleyball coach, but after coaching at Virginia Union, I found that coaching at the next level would be an extremely time-consuming occupation that would requires lots of time and travel leaving little time to spend with loved ones.”

  • What is your teaching background? How long have you taught for?

“I studied English and secondary education at Virginia Union, I did my student teaching here at Henrico HS. I filled board sub positions here and at John Rolfe Middle School, and I began teaching here in the fall of 2006.”

  • Are you involved in anything in school?

“Varsity Volleyball, Academic Team”

  • Any personal details you would like to share?

“I’m not really sure what personal details people would want to know, so here’s some useless-but-interesting: My favorite food is pizza – any pizza, breakfast pizza, dessert pizza, veggie pizza, freezer pizza, pizzeria pizza. I could eat it all day, every day. My favorite candy is Milky Way Midnight. My favorite color is green. I’m a midnight snacker.”

The steadfast loyalty shown by various students in a Warrior Time class is a testament to the impact she

has had on the students here.

“Mrs. Lovick was a great teacher.  She has high expectations for each and every student, and works to the best of her ability to give you opportunities to succeed,” commented Senior Devinasia Brown, who had Mrs. Lovick as a freshman.
