Susan Frye, HES Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Mrs. Susan Frye for being Hollywood Elementary School's Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Frye grew up in Saluda County, where she attended Hollywood School as a child. She began her teaching career at Saluda Elementary School, where she taught 3rd and 5th grade.  In 2007, she made her way back to her roots at Hollywood Elementary School as the media specialist, where she has been working with students and teachers in the areas of literacy and technology, and teaches our 3rd-5th grade GT students. 
Her passion and love for her children in all aspects are exhibited daily in her classroom. She plans engaging lessons for her students in order to instill a love of reading and learning. She creates a learning environment that children and teachers are welcomed to come into as soon as they enter the library. Her enthusiasm and positivity for teaching and for others fills the air and is contagious. I know she doesn’t even realize the huge impact she has on our school family and how she serves as one of the biggest “heartbeats” of our school. “To the world you may be just a teacher but to our students and our Hollywood family, you are a HERO!” Teachers make the world a better place and Susan Frye most certainly has helped to make Hollywood Elementary School a better place for our students, parents, and staff.  Congratulations Mrs. Frye!  Please know that we are so very proud to call you our very own Hollywood Elementary School’s Teacher of the Year.
