Meet Jenny Holt

Meet Jenny Holt

Name- Jenny Holt

How many years have you been teaching or worked in education?

This is my 10th year.  All have been here in 1st grade at Garrison-Pilcher.


What college did you attend?

Valdosta State University and Thomas University


My best day in the classroom was when....

I got my job! I was working as a paraprofessional for pod A.  Mrs. Judy Dorris came in one Friday and said, “I have a job for you and it starts on Monday.”


Who or what inspired you to become a teacher or to work in education? Marty Prine – My 2nd grade teacher. It was also Mrs. Walter, my 10th grade Biology teacher.


What profession other than your own would you most like to attempt?

I would love to own a cupcakery. I absolutely LOVE to bake and I can make a mean cupcake if I say so myself!


What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

Zumba. I got certified to teach this summer and have been subbing. I have my Zumbatomic certification and will hopefully start teaching at the Y in the afternoons.  Zumbatomic is Zumba for kids.  My class & I do this for movement breaks or during rainy day recess & they love it too!


What is one thing about you that likely would surprise your students?

This one is hard… I am pretty open and honest with my kids. Maybe that I’m afraid of bad weather… I also hate the dark (I sleep with my TV on – yes I’m a big baby). They love to find out that I am married to a bug man.


What else would you like to share about yourself or your profession?

I have a great husband and 2 sweet girls.  I am on my way to being ESOL certified & there is a special place in my heart for teaching ESOL students.
