Hello! My name is Naeema Holmes and I am extremely excited to be a part of the first grade team at Walnut Creek this year!  Teaching has been something I wanted to do ever since I was in elementary school myself. I think about the excitement for learning my teachers helped me develop and I want to help my students discover the same passion. Learning takes place in different ways for all children, but I make it my goal to help each child reach their full potential. 

I am originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, but I moved to Raleigh after I graduated Magna Cum Laude at East Carolina University! Aarrgghhh, GO PIRATES!! I majored in Elementary Education with a concentration in Science. I have three dogs: Tripper, Tiffany, and Apollo, and a guinea pig named Scooter. Along with learning and teaching, nature and animals are another passion of mine! I look forward to learning about the students' interests so we can explore them through our lessons in class and learn more about them together!
