Ms. Margaret D Hollingsworth
My education degree came from McNeese State University in 1988. I gained student teaching experience at DeQuincy Elementary in the first grade.
The first job of my career was at Merryville in third grade. I began teaching when the LEAP was first being administered in third grade.
I came back to Calcasieu Parish Schools in the next year, 1989. I taught first grade at Starks for a year then moved into second grade. For the next 15 years, it was my great pleasure to teach in Starks as a second grade teacher.
In 2005, I moved to Texas and taught ELA in Richardson at the Math Science Technology Magnet for 4.5 years. In later years, I taught 3 other years in Texas in Math, and ELA.
Currently, I’m in my 7th teaching year at DeQuincy Elementary School in ELA for third grade.
