Hi, My name is Kyle Fessler and I cannot tell you how blessed I am to be the Assistant Principal at Holt Elementary School. Holt is such an amazing school, and I am so honored to be a part of it. I am from St. Louis, MO. I married my college sweetheart, Liz Fessler, who is also a teacher at Vance Elementary School. We have been married for almost 7 years and have one daughter, Riley Ann. She is the most amazing thing that has happened in our lives. She takes our breath away with everything little thing she does. I previously taught 5th grade at Crestmont Elementary School in Tuscaloosa County, and graduated with my Masters in Educational Leadership from The University of Alabama in December 2014. Through the program I was able to complete an Administrative Residency at Echols Middle School under the leadership of Mrs. Nancy Terry, and Mr. Jason Stapp. I have known I wanted to be in the field of education since I was in the 5th grade. I had a male teacher that changed my life and made me want to be like him. It is my goal to changes lives and have students to reach their highest academic achievement possible. At Holt Elementary School we are dedicated, and passionate about developing leadership in each student. The Leader in Me has played a large part in increasing student leadership, and we hope to soon become a Lighthouse School. I am so excited to work alongside the teachers, students, parents, and stakeholders at Holt Elementary.
