My name is Clarissa Holmes, and I am from a tiny town in Texas called Alice. I received my undergraduate degree in education from The University of Texas at Austin and my graduate degree from Grand Canyon University in curriculum and instruction. I have taught grades 2, 4, and 5. Most recently, I taught fully remotely for a year and a half. I met my now husband (and his parents too) on Christmas Day by random chance in 2017. We recently celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary and are now expecting our first baby any day now. We reside in New York City with our 2 Pomeranians, whom we love going on walks with. I love traveling, reading, and anything cleaning/organization! I look forward to getting to meet more facilitators throughout my VISIONS journey.
