Mrs. Holly Jolly
I began teaching in 2001. Since then, I have taught in both public and private schools in Georgia, Virginia, and Alabama. I now serve as the media specialist at Florence Middle School where I strive to promote reading and encourage a collaborative learning environment. I am especially proud of our makerspace which provides students with innovative tools and exciting technologies that support both educational goals and personal interests.
I hold a Bachelors in Elementary Education from Auburn University, a Masters in Library Media from the University of West Georgia, an EdS with Teacher Leader certification from UNA, and an Instructional Leader certification from UNA. Currently, I am working on an EdD in Educational Leadership at the University of Alabama.
When I am not working, my family keeps me very busy. My husband and I have four children. They are all involved in extracurricular activities, so most of my afternoons are spent running between ball fields and the dance studio. In my limited free time, I volunteer at my church, enjoy shopping with friends, and love to read. I also enjoy skydiving.
