Maureen Holt teaches students in grades Pre-K through 8th in the subjects of social studies, art, drama, creative thinking and humanities. She has 29 years of teaching experience with 12 of those years spent serving students in DoDEA schools. She is a leader at her school, serving as both the Continuous School Improvement Team Chairperson and Safety Officer. In addition, she is a valued member of the Advancement Via Individual Determination, (AVID) site team, Crisis Team, and Middle School Team.

Holt earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education, Pre-K - 12 from Longwood University in Va. in 1983. She began teaching middle school art, and then moved on to Special Education for three years before returning to art in the elementary setting. Holt continued her education by earning her Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University, Fairfax, Va. in 2001.

During her career with DoDEA, she has taught many different electives in addition to art. She has written several original plays which her drama classes have performed. Holt said her certification in history has been the fulfillment of a life-long dream. Her strength is combining history and art with every other curricular area to motivate her students to want to learn more.

Holt spends the majority of her free time serving the small community in which she lives, working on her house, and taking care of her beagles. She is a former member of the town council and now serves as a member of the Planning Commission. She tries to instill a sense of duty and citizenship in her students which she hopes will have a lasting effect on their lives.
