    I am so excited to be your child's Kindergarten teacher! Teaching has been my passion for many years! We are going to have fun learning and exploring this year! 

    My name is Nakesa Holmes. I was born in Griffin, GA. and raised as a military brat, so I had the privilege to travel majority of my childhood. I currently reside in McDonough, GA. I have a fabulous 17 year old daughter that is my world. When I am not teaching, I spend time with my family and friends.

    This is my fourth year at Oakland as a Kindergarten Teacher. I worked in Dekalb County Schools as a Pre-K teacher and a Kindergarten teacher. Previously, I have worked as a Pre-K Teacher for McIntosh Trail Head Start Agency.  Through the years I have obtained my bachelor’s degree from Mercer University and currently working towards a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I love working with this age because they are like little sponges that are able to absorb loads of information. It is my goal to ensure my students are prepared for First grade when they leave my classroom. I am looking forward to a prosperous and exciting school year with Henry County Schools, as well as, you and your child! My door is always open, I believe in keeping the lines of communication open. So, let’s work together and make this a great year!
