Classroom Makeover: Congratulations, Mrs. Holom!

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA - It is time again for another Classroom Makeover! This time, a student's parents nominated kindergarten teacher, Cindy Holom. Mrs. Holom has been teaching at Christ the King School in Richland since the 1990s.

The nomination letter says, in part "Cindy is a wonderful teacher... her classroom is centered around the students. My son knows Mrs. Holom cares about him and wants the best for him." 

We asked her what her favorite part of teaching is; "The kids. Their everyday smiles, their hugs. The reward I get everyday seeing them grow faithfully, academically, socially, emotionally. They're amazing kids and it's a new job every day," said Cindy Holom.

Classroom Makeover is a partnership between NBC Right Now and Kadlec Regional Medical Center. Mrs. Holom will receive $250 to spend in her classroom. She said she'll likely buy books or math games.

    WASHINGTON - You know they old saying, "If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life."  Some aren't fortunate enough (or brave enough) to live by that motto, but a pup in training to sniff out explosives in the CIA obviously wasn't digging what she was doing, so she's moving on. Hopefully to something she enjoys more.
