Strikers
Hello! My name is Lucy Holland and I teach 6th grade prealgebra on the Strikers' team. I was educated in Augusta County and graduated from Wilson Memorial High School. I received my B.S. from Radford University. After a long stint in the mortgage industry I returned to school and earned my teaching license. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at lholland@augusta.k12.va.us. I am looking forward to journeying through six grade prealgebra with your child!
