I'm Ms. Holly, the teacher of the four year old class, and JumpStart Programs!
I've been with PDS for four years now, with a decade of teaching prior in both private sectors and NCOE. By far, my time here has been my most cherished teaching experience, both professionally and personally. Our staff is truly a family, from teachers to church employees. I believe whole heartedly in this school, its mission, and the program. I feel blessed to be able to be a part of it!
I was born and raised in Napa. As a fifth generation of this town, my family and I are very rooted into the community. I'm the daughter of a Napa D.A.'s office Chief Investigator, and the wife of a local firefighter. I love Napa, and try to incorporate the importance of leadership, involvement and helping, in my classroom and at home with my own daughter, as often as I can.
These years of early education are so important, not just for shapes and colors, numbers and letters, but for showing the children school is FUN. That it is a safe place where they are loved, can make friends and have a good time. These kids have many years of teachers and learning ahead of them. My thought is, if they love coming to school and being a student in my class, I've succeeded in my job, but more importantly, possibly helped for years to come.
I look forward to this school year, all our new students, our returning ones and all the exciting new experiences! I absolutely encourage any and all prospective students and parents to come in and see what PDS has to offer! Here's to a great year!!!
