'Like winning the green jacket'

Holland, who retires at the end of the school year, was surprised when she learned her peers had selected her as Davidson's Teacher of the Year.

"Oh my God!" she said. "I've been teaching 22 years and I never got anything like that. For me it was like winning the green jacket at the Masters. It was a big honor."

Holland was the ideal candidate, teachers said.

“She's made an impact. Kids come back every year to tell her thank you."
