“Holly creates something magical in her classroom. Students are happily engaged in creating, analyzing, and synthesizing thought provoking material. Students are entrenched in meaningful learning! Holly has created an inviting, warm, positive, energetic classroom culture. She instills a love for learning in her students. Holly is one of the best teachers and instructional leaders I have had the opportunity to work with. Her positive attitude, confidence, creativity and deep understanding of student learning is remarkable.”

Holly said, “As a teacher of English language, literature, and communication, I aim to provide students the skill set necessary to tackle any type of text so that they may participate in and improve their world and future. Without literacy, they cannot be competent citizens and contributors to their own life. To this end, I believe in continually adapting curriculum, developing teaching strategies, and honestly collaborating to engage all students to reach higher standards of critical thinking, problem-solving, and develop moral character. At the end of a teaching day, I want my students to walk away knowing my passion, feeling their potential, and understanding they are cared for and important. Their success is my honor. What a thrill is is to be able to work with them every day.”

Spirit of the Mustang - March

The teacher I want to give the Spirit of the Mustang to is just beginning his career, but he is already becoming a master at accommodating students both with and without special needs. He sees each student as an individual and approaches their needs with just that in mind. He has come to my room several times after school to discuss individual students and means of meeting their needs. He is always happy to make adjustments to teaching or testing methods while keeping his expectations for student achievement high. The students feel capable and intelligent as well as engaged and respected in his class. It is a pleasure to work with Justin Johnson who demonstrates the Spirit of the Mustang every day.
