Meet the Teachers

Jennifer Holden

Meet Ms. Jennifer Holden!  

Hello! My name is Jennifer Holden, I am the lead teacher of the Black and White Panda classroom. This is a picture of me and my family! I have worked at Calhoun City Schools for nine years, seven of which I was the the assistant teacher in a Pre K classroom. This is my third year...that I have been the Black & White Pandas lead teacher. Junior Jacket Academy is great new adventure for Calhoun City Schools. 

I have been married to my loving and supportive husband Ryan for almost 30 years! We are life long residents of this area! Our daughter Meredith was an honor student all thru her academic career at Calhoun City Schools. She is now in her senior year of college at Tennessee Tech University majoring in Early Childhood Education. We are very proud to say she has been on the Deans List all four years!  I was wondering if you could tell...that I am very proud of her! My husband, Ryan, is a paramedic in Rome, Georgia. He is my rock! We have always been involved in our daugthers education and been a big supporter of Calhoun City Schools! Go Jackets...football fridays are the best!

I was a secretary for many years prior to being a mother. Then, I became a Mother...the best job ever! We owned my husbands family business for many years...then I went to school at Georgia Northwestern and began my Early Childhood Educational journey. So...I began teaching! I was able to spend more time with my daughter by being on her schedule. I taught at a local preschool for several years in a three year old classroom. I love this age! Being three and growing into four is a very important time...they are transitioning from a toddler to a child. It is so much fun to see them learn and explore taking steps into knowledge and to just becoming themselves. We appreciate these milestones and knowing what to expect from this three and four year old age group is a plus! My daughter and I are both Alumni of Calhoun City Schools, so coming here to teach has been a blessing! We are members of the Calhoun First Baptist Church and of course Disney is one of our favorite vacation spots! I love my family...they are the world to me and I thank God for them each and everyday! The Black & White Pandas are my family too! I will seek to love your children as if they where my very own! At Calhoun City Schools...Our mission is to inspire all students to become life-long learners in the pursuit of excellence!
