Dr. Mary Holland
Dr. Holland arrives to Wilson County Schools after vast experience in school settings: private, overseas, public, Title 1, affluent schools, diverse schools, EL schools and in elementary and middle school tiers. She has taught most all grade levels up to fifth grade. She received her undergraduate from Missouri Southern State University in teaching, and shortly after moved to Brazil. Her family left Brazil after ten years and resettled in the Nashville area. She earned her doctorate degree from Lipscomb University in Learning Organizations and Strategic Change.
“I’m excited to partner with EPE's amazing staff, students, and families,” says Dr. Holland. “Elzie D. Patton has a reputation of community, strong partnerships, and family centeredness in and outside of the school. While growth impacts our schools, our demographics, and even our needs, it does not have to impact our excellence.”
