Mr. Holden

My name is Chase Holden, and I love being the principal at Pelham Oaks Elementary School. I started out my educational career teaching second grade at Creek View Elementary in Alabaster, AL. During my time in Alabaster, I also taught third grade. I was able to teach a departmentalized class, teaching only math and science, my last year at Creek View. During the summer of 2013, I became a consultant for the National Math and Science Initiative. After leaving Alabaster, I spent one year as a third grade teacher in Hoover City Schools. This is my third year as an administrator in Pelham City Schools.


I received my Bachelor’s degree from Auburn University. I continued my education at the University of Montevallo where I received my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership.

I am married to my wife, Laci, who teaches first grade at Bluff Park in Hoover. We have two daughters, Ava and Olivia.
