RIO RANCHO, N.M. — There was a time when she was growing up in El Paso that Daniella Holmes wanted to be an architect. At about the same time, give or take a couple years, Albuquerque-raised Daniel Holmes wanted to be a sports writer.
Decades later and they’re music educators in Rio Rancho Public Schools: Daniella Holmes is in her first year teaching music at Enchanted Hills Elementary, and her husband, Daniel Holmes, is the director of music at Cleveland High School.
“Daniel and Daniella have a wealth of experience with students at many levels, and I am so happy they have brought their talents to RRPS,” Fine Arts Executive Director Kurt Schmidt said. “I have seen both work with kids and am so impressed with their rapport with their students.”
