Holly Haynes

Welcome to Puster Elementary! 
I am Holly Haynes and I am the PROUD principal of Puster!
I was born and raised in Missouri. I received my BS in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from the University of Central Missouri (formerly Central Missouri State University). I earned my MS in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Missouri - Columbia. 
I began my teaching career teaching 2nd grade in Sedalia, MO. Since then, I've served as a teacher and an instructional coach/facilitator in 9 elementary schools across three states. My husband's career as a college and high school football coach allowed us opportunities to live life on the move for a while! In Lovejoy ISD, I began as a 2nd and 3rd-grade teacher at Hart Elementary. I served as Assistant Principal at Puster for three years. I now have the privilege and honor of serving as Principal at Puster.  
Chad and I have a son, Graham, who will be attending 8th grade at Willow Springs this year. Graham has joined me in Lovejoy since he was a toddler attending the pre-K program. As an educator and as a parent, I am so grateful to serve and be a part of this amazing community. 
I am confident, with open communication and strong partnerships with our staff and community, we can foster the most learning and bring out the best in every child! #PusterProud
