Mrs. Guice's Blog

I am thrilled to be teaching at GRACEPOINT School. My name is Holly Guice and I have the pleasure and honor of teaching Reading, 4th grade Math, and Music here at GRACEPOINT. I received my degree in Early Childhood Education from The University of Georgia and have been Orton Gillingham trained. I have taught Pre-K and 2nd grade, as well as ESL and conversational English in Thailand and Azerbaijan from 2001 to 2011. My husband, Merril, and three children live in Dallas, GA and oldest son attends UGA in Athens.
