Anna Holland

I attended Ole Miss for my education degree. I also have a master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Ole Miss.

I began working at Shadow Oaks in 1999. I worked in Kindergarten 3 years before teaching first grade for 13 years.  Currently, I am the Librarian.

I have two children. My daughter graduated from Horn Lake High School and has a master's degree from Ole Miss in Counseling.  She lives and works in Oxford.  My son graduated from Lake Commorant High School.  He has a Pharmacy Degree from Ole Miss and works in Tupelo.  My husband and I enjoy sporting events and traveling.  I spend my free time at Church, reading, walking for exercise, or with my family, my dog and my cats.
