Holly Jaye received her degree from Samford last year, completing her studies in the Orlean Bullard Beeson School of Education and Professional Studies.  She teaches fifth-graders at McAdory Elementary School in Jefferson County.  A few days ago, she was notified of her selection as a Scholastic Book Club Teacher Advisor for 2009, one of only 15 teachers across the United States designated for this honor.  Holly is one of only two first-year teachers named to the panel.   


The world is better because of Holly Jaye and our outstanding graduates from the School of Education and Professional Studies.
