Youngs Grove Elementary

1st grade

Room # 217

Planning Time: 12:30 - 1:15

My name is Holly Nails.  I have been blessed with a wonderful husband, Chris Nails and five sweet children.  We live here in Cedartown and attend Victory Baptist Church.  I graduated from Cedartown High School in 1995. I then received my bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education from The State University of West Georgia in 1999.  I began teaching in August of 1999 at Cherokee Elementary.  I continued to work there for eleven years.  During those years at Cherokee, I earned my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership  from Jacksonville State University in 2006.  I then moved to Youngs Grove Elementary and have loved it from the very first day!  I have been in education for nineteen years and have taught kindergarten, first, and second grade. I believe that teaching is a calling and one of the most important jobs that someone can do!.

I believe that all students can learn!  All children may not learn at the same pace, however; all growth is celebrated! I believe in treating all students with kindness and respect.  I treat each child in my classroom just as if I would want my own personal children treated.  I believe in hard work and perseverance! Success does not always come easy.  Teaching students to do their best, work hard, and persevere are life long skills.  I believe we are preparing students for the future.  Education should prepare children to be successful and contribute to society's well being.  I believe in teaching the whole child.  Education is not only academics, but morals, manners, etc.  We are preparing our students to be hardworking, successful,well balanced individuals.
