Ms. Holly Smith

I am extremely blessed to be working at RISE Academy for the 2021-2022 school year.  This school has an amazing staff and I am fortunate to count myself among them.  I have been a passionate athlete and coach all of my life. I was fortunate to play a sport (soccer), as a means of paying for college.  I graduated from the University of Arkansas- Fayetteville certain I would teach with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology.  I fell in love with coaching while playing soccer as a Razorback and I have coached club soccer for 15 years.  Helping students use soccer as a means of paying for college has been extremely rewarding.  I have also subbed at Alvin, Manvel, and Shadow Creek while earning my teaching certificate.  I am naturally drawn to P.E. because I believe that a healthy mind and body helps students throughout their lifetime.  I am also drawn to computer based classes which has led me to Edgenuity.  This is my first year at RISE Academy teaching both Edgenuity and P.E.. I am here to show students positive viewpoints, and motivate them to do their best no matter what.  I look forward to a strong successful year.  I welcome all questions and concerns.  Rise up and burn blue!
