Stacy Holden

MSL (Multisensory Structured Language) and Primary Teacher

After graduating from Armidale CAE (now UNE) in 1988, Stacy spent her first 2 years teaching in a remote indigenous community on Elcho Island, in the Northern Territory and was able to become immersed in an amazing culture, surrounded by some of the most beautiful people she has ever met. From there Stacy moved to Broken Hill where she taught for 5 fantastic years and met her wonderful husband.


In 1996, Stacy moved to beautiful Coffs Harbour where she spent 10 years teaching in stunning Bellingen. It was here that she discovered her passion for teaching children with special needs and learning difficulties and was given the opportunity to take up the role of Learning and Support Teacher. Stacy was very fortunate to continue in this role at Boambee PS where she has worked for the past 16 years.


In 2018, Stacy completed the IMSLE training to become a MSL educator, allowing her to specialise in working with students with Dyslexia. This training was a life changer. Not only did it give her the education she needed to really help students but it also allowed her to move on with the next phase of life! Stacy recently resigned from teaching and took up Fi’s wonderful offer to work with students at Serendipity. Serendipity allows Stacy to create individual learning programs to suit individual learning needs so that students gain confidence in their ability to learn.


Stacy has 2 adult children who both live in Tasmania. This allows Stacy a wonderful excuse to travel and explore this wonderful state when she visits. Stacy is also a self confessed craftaholic! She especially love doing mosaics and have just discovered the joy, and expense, of resin.
