Mrs. Wood

My name is Holly Wood (my married name... so yes, I chose it!) I am going into my 4th year as a teacher. For the past 3 years, I taught High School English, but I am excited about a new school, grade level, and content area!

I ended up at Farley Middle School because of my desire to work in Hutto ISD. When my husband and I moved to the Austin area, we quickly got plugged in at our church, Hutto Bible Church (the church my husband went to in High School!) Last year, I began working with our youth group leading a middle school bible study. I quickly fell in love with working with middle schoolers, and had no idea that the Lord would move me to work with them as my job! I decided to leave my former school because I wanted to work in Hutto, closer to where we live, and where we were already involved. So, when I was offered a position to teach Teen Leadership at Farley, I was ecstatic and happily accepted the position. I look forward to getting to know each of my students and watching them grow as leaders this year. 

More you should know about me: I'm an Aggie, an avid reader, a novice baker, and a proud dog "mom." I love spending time watching cooking shows with my husband, hanging out with our youth group, and drinking coffee with friends.
