Meet the Teacher

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am so excited to have your child in my class! My name is Holly Dunn and I’m looking forward to teaching Fundamentals of Computing this year. I am a graduate of Westside High School, so it feels good to be home! I live in Williamston, SC with my husband (David), my three children (Brayden 13, Easton 9, and Scottie Lynn 8 months), and my three dogs. Some of my hobbies include dirt biking with my boys, fishing (my husband is a fishing guide), gardening, and shopping.

I am a participant in the PACE program offered through the state of South Carolina. This program is allowing my dream of becoming a teacher to finally come true! I have a bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Strayer University. I have previously worked at Anderson School District Five as a data clerk, bookkeeper, and secretary. I am so excited to start my first year in the classroom!
