Ms. Debra Holmes

Welcome to my classroom! I am thrilled to be your child's 7th Grade ELA teacher this year! This is my 25th year of teaching and my 9th year at RMS. I previously taught grades 4-6 at both Selma Elementary and Selma Middle. I live at Lake Gaston with my husband Todd and cat Daisy. I enjoy fishing, kayaking, attending Canes hockey games (Go Canes!), and of course, curling up with a good book. I am a JoCo girl at heart, having been born and raised in Smithfield, and am a proud graduate of North Johnston High School. 

I look forward to working with my students and parents during the 2019-2020 school year!
