    Biography _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
              My name is Holly Tanner and I am the proud school counselor of Myrtlewood Elementary.  I was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and I am a graduate of the  Tuscaloosa County School System.  I am married to my wonderful husband, Robert Tanner.   We have two daughters named Ivey Jane and Lucy Beth.  They light up our world with joy!  We also have a seven year old "fur son" named Lockie that also keeps us smiling.  I am from a large  family that enjoys  Sunday dinners after church and celebrating life as much as possible.  My family and I love Alabama football, traveling, broadway musicals and being outdoors.  Cooking is something we like to do together along with being with our friends and family.  We are members of First United Methodist Church of Tuscaloosa and enjoy various outreach opportunities. 

              It is going to be a fabulous and exciting year for Myrtlewood Elementary. I am passionate about my career and love helping students grow to their full potential.  I am here to help your child be the most successful student that he or she can be today and            moving forward.   I know that your child is your most valuable gift and they will be cared for and loved.  I feel blessed to be part of this school and your child's life.  I look forward to working with our students, parents, faculty and the community.
