Samuels, Holly

Welcome to 4th Grade, AUSTIN RAIDERS!

Holly SamuelsI am teaching ELAR and Social Studies and am excited to start my 20th year of teaching in the new school with my Austin family. Before returning to Austin, I taught three years at the Center for Innovation at McMurry. Prior to teaching in Abilene, I spent 8 years with Weatherford ISD, 1 year at Clyde Intermediate, and took a couple of years off to stay home with my children. This will be my 8th year teaching 4th grade at Austin.  I graduated from Texas Tech University with a BS in Interdisciplinary Studies and received my Master of Education in Gifted and Talented from Hardin Simmons University. 

My husband, Adam, serves as the Director of Worship Arts at St. Paul and Youth Chorus Conductor for Chorus Abilene. He is also the music teacher for the Center for Innovation. My oldest daughter, Rigby, is a sophomore at Abilene High. Hazel is a 7th grader at Mann. Our 2 year old, David, spends his days entertaining.

I am looking forward to a great 2020-2021 teaching and learning with your children!
