Hello, My name is Kristy Groves. I will be the Fifth Grade ELA Teacher at Holly Springs Intermediate School. A little bit about myself, I am from Tupelo where I was born and raised. I graduated from Mississippi University for Women in 2015. I was a substitute teacher for four years for Tupelo Public School District were I discovered that I wanted to become a teacher. I look forward to meeting the students and parents this school year. I am elated to be here and ready for new beginnings!
