Holly Murray was first introduced into the world of Early Childhood at Highland High School in her ECE Class. From there, she studied Child Development at the University of Utah and graduated with her bachelor's degree in Human Development and Family Studies. Her passion for Early Childhood Education, combined with a love for the Culinary Arts, Design, and Child Development led Holly to eventually go back to grad school and earn her Master's in Secondary Education, during which she worked at Salt Lake Head Start as a Lead Pre-school Teacher for two years. This will be Holly's 6th year as a FACS Educator. Holly absolutely loves working with the high school students and preschoolers together. It is fascinating to see their creativity and interaction and ultimately what each set of students can learn together.
