Greetings Reid Ravens!

I have been a part of the Richmond Public Schools family for over eighteen years now. I am originally from Honolulu, HI, but have lived most of my life in the Richmond area. I come from a family of six (three sisters and two brothers). Before I was born, my parents both immigrated to the United States; my father is from the Philippines and my mother is from Germany. I am the father of two teenage girls; Sunny is 13 and Penelope is 15. I love every minute of it. 

I know in my heart that all children can learn and rise to high expectations. I am looking forward to being a part of the Raven family and getting to know all of the students, their families, and the staff.

Ms. Holoman, Assistant Principal



I am so excited to be a part of the team at G. H. Reid Elementary School!  This is my 33rd year in education and 13th year serving as a school administrator.  I have worked in Richmond Public Schools since the fall of 2002.  I have served two other schools Miles J. Jones Elementary and Lois Harrison-Jones Elementary (formerly known as John B. Cary Elementary) prior to joining the G. H. Reid Family.  Before moving to Richmond, I worked in Southampton County Public Schools. 

I have been a teacher, cooperating teacher for student teachers in college, afterschool/extended day school-based coordinator, Positive Behavior Intervention Supports school-based facilitator, Consistency Management and Cooperative Discipline school-based facilitator, professional development presenter (school-based and college level), summer school principal, assistant principal and interim principal.  In my career, I was honored to be chosen as the Teacher of the Year at Miles J. Jones Elementary in Richmond Public Schools and was a top ten finalist.  I have also had the privilege of being selected as the Teacher of the Year twice at Ivor Elementary School within the Southampton County Public School District.  During the 1998-99 year, I served as Southampton County’s Teacher of the Year representing that district on the state level for Virginia.  

I am a native of Southampton County, Virginia.  I am a 1985 graduate of Southampton High School.  I graduated from Norfolk State University with a B.S. degree in Early Childhood Education.  I received a Master’s of Education degree in Educational Leadership and Supervision from Virginia State University.  During my moments of leisure, I enjoy spending time with my family more specifically my son, Isaiah.  I also love event/wedding planning, shopping, baking, listening to music and going to the movies.

I truly believe all students can learn and should be given as many opportunities as possible to reach their highest potential.   As a product of a “village-styled” upbringing, I believe it takes educators, parents, and the community-at-large working cohesively together to foster excellence in education for all students.  Together we must construct and cultivate relationships with our students to enhance their likelihoods of academic achievement in a safe and nurturing school environment.
