I am pleased to welcome you to the 2022 - 2023 school year! I am looking forward to having your child as a student. Fourth grade is such a fun year with so many wonderful learning activities to celebrate. In order to have a fun year, my most important goal is to create a family of learners in my classroom. I am committed to creating a classroom environment where your child is a valued, trusted, and integral part of our family of learners. In order to accomplish this, I have planned a variety of activities to emphasize and reinforce this goal. It is my hope that you will support and encourage this vision at home.



    I grew up in Durham, NC, along with my twin sister. This year marks my eighth year in education. Teaching is my passion and calling. I received my bachelor’s degree in English from High Point University and Elementary Education from North Carolina Central UniversityI have a nine-year-old daughter, Zoe, a Miniature Poodle named Sinatra and a flock of seven parrots! Our household is quite entertaining!

    I welcome and value parent involvement throughout the year. I would love to hear from you, and you are welcome to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have. The best way to reach me is through Class Dojo. You can also send an email to holleyp@gcsnc.com
