Holly’s inspiration for becoming a teacher was the realization that teachers can completely change a child’s outlook on learning and life in a positive way. The impact teachers had on her and her family growing up really stuck with her, and she was amazed at how teachers can impact not only their students’ happiness, but the families of those students as well. Holly’s passion lies in anything Early Years and has recently developed a strong interest in the Science of Reading research.
