Kathy Holley has been teaching for over 15 years and for the past 13 years, she has taught Gifted Education, Business Enterprise, and Creative Thinking at Charles F. Bolden Elementary/Middle School in the South Carolina/Fort Stewart/DoDDS Cuba District. Prior to teaching at Bolden, Mrs. Holley taught Modular Technology, a project-based lab, at Lady's Island Middle School in Beaufort, South Carolina. She graduated from the University of South-Carolina Aiken, magna cum laude, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. In 2004, she also acquired her certification in Gifted Education through the University of Charleston and Converse College.

Believing that she will inspire and ignite the minds of young people on a daily basis through the use of challenging-based lessons and technology, is what motivates her as an educator. As a former parent stated, "My children learned the benefits of time-management and how to break a large project down into manageable bits through the Wax Museum experience. Due to technology, Mrs. Holley was able to have one-on-one time with each student and each project. How much better does it get, actual individualized education! As the students progressed and began to write their reports, she monitored these online and made editorial suggestions. I have NEVER seen technology used so well in a school in all of my years as a parent. I am so very impressed with Mrs. Holley's ability to manage so many students and projects at one time."

Although born in Chelsea, Massachusetts, Mrs. Holley was transferred at an early age to the beautiful Lowcountry of Beaufort, South Carolina due to her father being in the Marine Corps. Relaxing by the beach with a good book or magazine, walking the waterfront, riding a roller coaster with her grandson, and traveling the waters on a boat with her family and friends are her greatest pleasures outside of teaching
