Mrs. Holley Morrill - 2nd Grade TeacherHi! My name is Mrs. Morrill. I am so happy I will get to be your teacher this year!
Although I have been here in Virginia for about 11 years , I am a New Yorker at heart. I was born and raised in Rochester, NY. I went to school at SUNY Oswego where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration in English Language Arts and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. After I graduated, I moved to Virginia (Mr.Morrill's job took us on this new adventure) to begin my first year teaching. I taught in Fairfax County for 7 years (6 years in 1st and 1 in 3rd) and am excited to be starting my 12th year (5th at Creighton’s Corner)! I have taught 1st, 2nd and reading resource at CCE. You will soon see that I hold reading very close to my heart and I cannot wait to share my love of books with all of you! One of my favorite things is when students bring in books from home that they love to share with us. :)
The Morrill family members are HUGE sports fans (mainly Mr.Morrill but the rest of us by default), so in the majority of my spare time you can find me cheering on the Buffalo Bills & Sabres, NY Mets, and Syracuse basketball. I love the comradery we see in sports and hearing all the stories of perseverance and overcoming struggles. I also love going to the beach, READING (adult and childrens books), game nights, going on trips, cooking, scrapbooking and spending time with my friends and family. Mr. Morrill and I are always having fun exploring around town with our 3 year old, Mason and our youngest Colt, Cameron. You will hear me talk alot about them and share stories daily! I cant wait to meet you and hear all about your families and start building our own classroom family built on kindness, creatvity and love! I look forward to a great 2018-2019 school year!
