Beloved Mrs. Holt Receives Crystal Apple Award

Submitted by shawnee.mcmullin on Wed, 01/08/2020 - 15:28

Mrs. Holt is a wife, mother, and outstanding educator. Her husband and children are so grateful to have such an amazing wife and mother. As a mother of three, she has a lot on her plate. She is able to balance the busy aspects of home-life with the craziness of teaching. She is a support to her team and leads kindergarten in a positive way. When she is not at school, she is a wonderful mom and tirelessly strives to support the needs of her children and needy husband. After a day full of snotty noses, tying shoes, letting children in lines, redirecting countless times, and all the other demands of teaching in today’s schools, she comes home and has the patience to help with homework, make lunches, do multiple loads of laundry and be present for her family. She does everything with love and dedication. 

Mrs. Holt has been teaching for 14 years, and has spent all of those years at Santaquin Elementary masterfully teaching Kindergarten. She has obtained a Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, and spent many hours gaining further education so that she is up on the latest ideas for supporting her students. She has a great understanding of early childhood  development and always implements best practices in her teaching. She is 100% dedicated to her students. She knows and loves each of them and knows how to help them. 

Congratulations Mrs. Holt!
