Welcome to Mrs. Holt's First Classroom Home!
View original image in a new window. Hi, my name is Kim Holt. This is my fifth year with Hickory City Schools. I graduated in 1988 from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. This will be my 15th year teaching. I have taught in both private and public education, kindergarten through sixth grades.

I am married to Paul and have 2 daughters-Sara, 29 and Hannah, 26 and 1 son, Jacob, 21. We lost our 17 year old dachshund in October, but now have a 1 year old cheweenie named "Jack Jack".

I grew up in the western part of Lincoln County on an apple farm. My parents inspired me to always work hard and do my best. From a very young age, I have wanted to be a teacher.

I am excited to be a part of the first grade team at Southwest Primary and am looking forward to teaching your child for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.
