My name is Andrew Holmes. I grew up in Sugar Land, Texas, just outside of Houston. I attended Blinn Junior College in Brenham, Texas before moving on to Texas Tech. Education is my second career. I was an assistant store manager at Lowe's for a few years before becoming an educator.
I am excited to enter my 11th year of teaching. Those years consist of 1 year in PreK, 1 year in First Grade, and 1 year in Fifth Grade. Before joining the staff at Copperfield Elementary, I had always taught all subjects. That background gives me a lot of knowledge about what works for children and the concepts that they are going to struggle with.
Also, I am a father of an amazing 6-year-old boy. Having my own child has definitely helped open my eyes to the most common concerns and worries of parents. In my classroom, I treat every child the way I would want my son to be treated.
