My name is Abby Holmes. This is my 5th year teaching at Columbine! I am fortunate to be able to teach two subjects that I am passionate about…art and literacy. I went to school at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado and studied art, art history and earned my teaching license. I taught in New Mexico for four years before moving to Denver to continue my education. I wanted to develop my love of reading into a skill set that I could use to (hopefully) inspire others to love reading too. With that goal in mind, I completed a Masters in Reading.
In my life outside of school, I have a pretty great son who attends East High School and loves playing lacrosse and a daughter who currently attends my alma mater in Durango. I love to spend time with my pup and cats, garden, and make things!
I love being a part of the Columbine community and appreciate the opportunity to work with all of our students!
