Whitley Whales Principal

I want to welcome you and your child to Whitley Elementary School.  I am proud to serve Whitley Elementary School as its administrative leader again this year.  We have an excellent staff who are committed to educating your child/children.

Ms. Holcombe's Educational Background

I graduated from McGill-Toolen High School and then received my Accounting Degree from Dillard University.  I realized that my heart was in educating and nurturing children to help them better themselves, so I returned to Springhill College to complete my Masters Degree in Elementary Education.  I began teaching first grade, but realized I wanted to make a larger impact on the lives of children.  I then enrolled in the Administrative Certification program at the University of South Alabama and completed that degree.  I have been serving as principal of Whitley Elementary School since my graduation.

Ms. Holcombe's Philosophy 

I believe that through student self-discipline, mutual respect, and a practice of common courtesy, we can TEACH our students, ENRICH their lives with academics and positive experiences, and MOTIVATE them to achieve their personal best and be productive, contributing citizens in society. 

I am confident this can occur with active and positive parental support and the dedicated faculty that is maintained at Whitley Elementary School.
