About the Author
Tracey Holliday, as a child wanted to be a beautician. I have a picture of myself when I was 3 with bows all over my head. Then I realized early in college that I fell in love with teaching because I wanted to make a difference. I played around with Social Work a bit but couldn't handle the heart break. At this point, I have 16 years in the Education Field spread among grades K-2. Most of my time was spent in K. I was Teacher of the Year for our School, Atoka Elementary, in 2009-2010. Atoka is the largest school in our county with almost 1000 students. I felt it quite an honor. That's been my biggest accomplishment, along with writing this book, with my career. My biggest personal accomplishment has been my family. I have raised 3 beautiful daughter. My oldest, Audrey, is going to be a sophomore in college to be a TEACHER! My middle daughter, Kaleigh, is going to be a Senior in High School, and my baby, Emilee, is going to be Freshman in High School. My poor husband, Chuck.... He has a MAN CAVE! He really does! He's a chemical engineer for Owens-Corning. I'm a proud mother and wife.
