      Thank you for taking the time to visit my classroom website! My name is Holly Lugo and I am the 5th grade resource teacher at Black Mountain Elementary School. I am married and have a three-year-old daughter and a baby boy who was born this past May. I love animals! We have two dogs (Rocky and Josie), a pot bellied pig (Porkchop), a ball python (Marley), and an aquarium. I also have two gerbils (Bellatrix and Luna), who are our classroom pets! In the warmer months, I enjoy doing anything outdoors - mostly hiking, camping, and swimming in local waterfalls. In the winter, I love to snowboard and play in the snow (when we are lucky enough to get some). I also love to read and spend time with my family!
       This year will be my third full year at BME. I have been a part of the Owen district since 2010, when I began working at Owen High School as a custodian. In 2012, I became the Media Assistant. It was at Owen High that I discovered my interest in working with students with special needs. I began taking courses at AB Tech and soon transferred to Mars Hill University, where I studied Integrated Education (Elementary Education and Special Education). I completed my student teaching at Black Mountain Primary in April of 2016 and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Special Education in May 2016. On top of finishing my student teaching and graduating, I landed my dream job as an exceptional children teacher, here at Black Mountain Elementary. I could not be more happy and proud to continue to be a part of this amazing community. Teaching is my passion and I feel like teaching in the Owen district is as good as it gets! I truly love working with my students and helping them grow to their fullest potential, and I appreciate the opportunity to work with them, as they help shape me as an educator.
