Meet Mrs. De la Fuente
Meet Mrs. Frye - Librarian
Meet Mrs. Hallman - Guidance
My name is Courtney Hallman. I am the new school counselor at Hollywood Elementary. Before becoming the school counselor, I was a classroom teacher. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. This is my fifth year working in Saluda County and it is truly where I feel like I belong.
I graduated from the University of South Carolina and am a full blown Gamecock fan! The only tigers I’ll be pulling for are the Saluda Tigers! My husband and I live in Saluda with our dog, Gracie, and we will soon be adding a little girl into the mix. We couldn’t be more excited to continue growing our family and being able to raise our future children right here in Saluda.
I am looking forward to this school year and being able to serve Hollywood Elementary as the new school counselor.

I am married to Shane and we have two children: Natalee (16) and Cody (23). I enjoy being outside, traveling, attending Natalee’s sporting events, spending time at the lake, and spending time with my family.
I look forward to a great year this year! We are going to learn so much.
