Mrs. Holmes

Welcome to Kindergarten

     Hello to my wonderful Kindergarten families!  My name is Mrs. Holmes and I am so excited to be your child’s Kindergarten teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. 

     Kindergarten is a wonderful year.  We will learn our ABC’s and numbers.  We will also begin to read and write sentences and many more amazing things.

     I am so excited to have each and everyone of you in my class this year.


     This is my 2nd year teaching at Lakehoma, but my 16th year of teaching. I have taught Head-start, Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, Second Grade, and Early Childhood Special Education.

     I studied Early Childhood Education from Columbia College in South Carolina and Special Education from Arkansas State University.

     I have been married to my husband, Paul, for 25 years and we have two boys: Philip and Joshua. We also have two fur boys: Baxter and Spike!

     When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, swimming, and traveling!
