Hello and thanks for stopping by!
My name is Holley Thornton. This is the start of my third year teaching second grade and I love it! I have been teaching for three years at Mary Martin Elementary and I am proud to be a ROO. Teaching has been my passion since I was a little girl. In fact, my five siblings and I would play "pretend school" and I was always the teacher. I remember using the walls of my closet for my chalkboard (remember those?) to teach my lessons. However, I quickly learned my lesson - sorry mom. Now, instead of teaching my sibilings, I get to teach your child and it is an honor. There's nothing I would rather do. In 2015, I graduated from Tarleton State Univeristy with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. Before I entered the classroom, I took a year off and traveled for 11 months. When I'm not teaching, traveling and being outdoors is where I love to be.
I look forward to having a wonderful year at Mary Martin Elementary. Education is empowering and it is my goal to empower your child to take chances and advance in his/her learning.
