Holmes, an online learning teacher, was selected as a winner in the career and technical education category for the innovative use of curriculum to improve student outcomes. Holmes was recognized at the Odysseyware Educator Impact Awards reception recently in Philadelphia.
With the assistance of Odysseyware, Holmes has developed programs designed to help at-risk youth meet graduation requirements. Robertson County has been able to venture into new territories this year with the opening of the Robertson County Adult Education Program using Odysseyware in conjunction with teachers to assist applicants. Students have enjoyed the versatility of the platform and the new perspective on learning.
“Mary Jo Holmes is a dedicated teacher who consistently goes above and beyond for the students of Robertson County,” said Supervisor of Secondary Education Bill Locke. “We are proud to support Mrs. Holmes as she receives this hard-earned recognition for her great work.”
Holmes received a mobile device storage cart (Connect30) from Spectrum Industries, Inc. and other valuable giveaways for the first-place prize in her category.
