Mrs. Vicki Holloway
Hello and welcome to my webpage! My name is Vicki Holloway and I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year in 2nd grade!
The 2019-2020 school year marks my 8th year of teaching and I have been at Glenn Duffy Elementary in 2nd grade for all of that time. I started my college education at Northwest Arkansas Community College while working full-time as a financial service representative. I spent two years completing my basic courses, and then transferred to John Brown University where I graduated in May 2011. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Education degree with an emphasis on Early Childhood Education.
I have been married for 18 years and am blessed to be Mom to three boys, ages 7, 5 and almost 2. In September, we will welcome a new baby to our family and we won't know if we're having a boy or girl until the baby is born! We love to play outside, read, play games, and do all sorts of other fun things together as a family. I'm a life-long member of the Gravette community and love our little town and its people. Some of my favorite things are crushed ice, the color pink, reading, baking, adventures with my family, and coffee.
I believe that every child has potential to learn and that learning occurs in different ways, through a variety of learning opportunities and through the people around us. I am a firm believer in a positive attitude, taking responsibility for actions and assigned jobs, the value of hard work, honesty, integrity, and communication. Our classroom is a family where mistakes are valued, everyone is respected as an individual and team member, and we build each other up. We are life-long learners and we will have fun as we learn and grow together! A few things to look forward to this year are reading some excellent stories, hands-on science investigations, math exploration, and opportunities to build technology skills to accompany our learning in many areas.
We will be talking a lot about growth this year--how we can grow as learners, how to make sure we have the right tools to grow as learners, how to help others around us grow, and even setting personal growth goals. It's going to be an exciting year, and I am so looking forward to spending it with you!
