M. Lovaasen


My name is Martha Lovaasen and I have the privilege of serving as principal of greatest school in East Texas, Elysian Fields Elementary. We are located in the heart of the Elysian Fields community. Our staff and students join together to form a large family who live, love, laugh, cry and learn together.


I have been a part of Elysian Fields ISD for 18 years and worked in the field of education for 26 years.  I am married to Ronald Lovaasen who graduated from E.F. in 1986 and we have a son, Preston, who is a freshman at Elysian Fields High School.  I graduated from Spurger High School in 1988, from East Texas Baptist University in 1992 with a degree in Education and from Texas A&M University Texarkana in 2001 with a master’s degree in Education and Mid-management.  I taught in Marshall for 8 years before moving to Elysian Fields to teach third grade.  I later became the assistant principal of E.F. Elementary, a position I held for 11 years. This school, our staff and our students are a tremendous part of my heart and who I am.  Most of my free time is spent enjoying my family, reading, cooking and enjoying our home in the country.
