Gabrielle H. Holmes
Welcome to Mrs. Holmes' Reading and Writing class where every day is a GREAT day to learn something new! I look forward to the new experiences we will share this term. Education is the key to success, and a good education can unlock so many doors and provide so many wonderful opportunities. Teaching is both a blessing that I cherish and a task that I take very seriously. I look forward to us learning, growing, and achieving together. My colleagues and I are very optimistic about the school year, and we have so many ideas and great things planned! In order to be better prepared, I have listed a few items that are required for my Reading/Writing class. If you have any questions about any of these items, feel free to contact me at the above e-mail address and phone number. Thank you in advance for your continued support and I look forward to meeting with soon!
About the Teacher
Being a proud Vaughan, Mississippi native and a product of the Yazoo County School District, traditional Southern values of respect, responsibility, and readiness were instilled in me at a very early age. I bring these same moral principles with me into my classroom. I expect my students to perform at the highest level of excellence possible each day—good enough is NEVER enough! My goal isn’t to just teach them, but I hope to inspire them and ignite in them a passion for learning and a thirst for success! I’m a graduate of Mississippi’s only urban comprehensive university, Jackson State, where I received my Bachelors of Arts in English, as well as the state’s finest Christian institution, Belhaven College, where I acquired my Maters of Arts in Teaching. My pastimes are reading, writing, watching movies, and spending time with those closest to me.
