This is my first year teaching, and I am so excited about being a part of the Desoto County School's team! I'm looking forward to an amazing year with this amazing community of teachers and parents.


Hello! My name is Mrs. Hollis, and I am so excited to meet you and your student! I am originally from Tupelo, MS, where I grew up and attended Tupelo High School and Itawamba Community College. On June 16th, 2018, I married Coach Hollis, and we moved to Southaven as soon as possible. We are both thrilled to be in a new city where we can learn about this awesome county. 

In my free time, I love to read, write poetry, scour Pinterest for new recipes to cook, watch Netflix with my husband, and grow succulent and cactus plants (since my green thumb is a bit weak). When I was in high school, I was an active member of the theatre department, where I was appointed role of secretary in our International Thespian Society Troupe - Troupe 1949. Through the ITS troupe, I was able to compete in statewide theatre competitions. When I was in college at MUW, I was a part of a club whose sole focus was creative writing and thinking. As a result of hours of inspiration and interaction with other writers, I had two short stories and four poems published through MUW's Dilettante Magazine. Additionally, my first original play was performed through the inaugural "Emerging Voices" playwrighting showcase, which integrated MUW's theatre and English departments.

I am always pushing myself to become the kind of person that middle school-me could look up to and want to be. I became a teacher because of three of my greatest loves - English, teaching, and people. It is my aspiration to make sure that my students, colleagues, and parents know about my passion and love not through my words, but through my actions. I so look forward to this school year with you all!
