Teacher Spotlight: Robyn Holder
8/20/2014, 1:32 p.m.
A new teacher, Robyn Holder is beginning her second year of teaching first graders at Epes Elementary School in Newport News.
Holder earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Old Dominion University and a master’s in elementary education from Cambridge College.
Holder loves the school she works at, both students and staff, and says she has a “wonderful” team. She enjoys helping her students grow academically and socially and even spent every morning this summer helping her nephew, Robert, improve his reading through various concept of word, word study, and reading fluency activities.
The proud mother of a seven-month-old daughter, Holder is juggling being a new teacher and a mother, which “both are equally rewarding experiences,” she said.
