Ms. Holmes is such a sweet lady and very knowledgeable teacher. She knows her stuff and is able to help anyone with any questions they may have. She taught me to really dig deeper into the overall meaning of literature. Overall, great teacher!

Lisa Holmes is the only reason I care about literature. She has taught me to see everything with so much more depth and consideration. She doesn't grade many things and her class is an easy A, therefore I am not afraid to take risks. A student without curiosity would get nothing from her. Students who really want to learn will notice how she absolutely blows every other OHS lit teacher out of the water. Rozeboom included.

I have a love/hate relationship with Holmes. She sometimes gets on my nerves, but usually, I really like her. Very quirky. Most kids hate her, but if you don't, you're a smart cookie.

She is a very enthusiastic teacher but tends to ignore the fact that english and the humanities are not the only things in the universe. Good if you're artsy fartsy, otherwise not.
