Michelle Holland

I have been married since 1990 and have three grown children. My daughter works in theatre in Massachusetts. She is a company manager and tour manager for a Shakespeare Theatre. My older son spent time caring for his grandfather before going back to work. He spent one year in college in Arizona before deciding he wanted to be closer to home. My younger son is a sophomore at Virginia Tech. He is studying Construction Management. We have one cat named Scrooge. He was born in August of 2018.

I received my bachelor’s degree from Salem College in North Carolina in 2011. My master’s in School Administration came from Queens University of Charlotte in North Carolina in 2015.

I worked in a rural school for 5 years and spent 2 years working in Winston Salem before moving back home to Portsmouth, where my husband and I grew up. I began working at Chesterfield Academy in the 2018-2019 school year.
