    Hello, Holston students, parents, teachers, and community partners! I'm Katie Lutton, and I'm truly honored and humbled to serve as Holston Middle School's principal. Whether students are just beginning their middle school journey or returning for another good year, I want to ensure that each student learns foundational skills from caring, compassionate educators. I truly believe that middle school is a time for curiosity, exploration, and new experiences--and I can't think of any place better than Holston to undertake this venture. I look forward to the 2023-2024 school year, and I'm thrilled and eager to educate your children.

    My name is Allison Mullins, and I absolutely love being an assistant principal at Holston Middle School.  I attended Holston as a student, started my teaching career here, sent all 3 of my children to Holston, and returned to Holston to begin my administrative experience.  Holston feels like home to me.  I consider it a huge blessing to get to encourage, mentor, and lead teachers and students at this special place!!


    As a new teacher at Holston, I had a principal that pushed me out of my comfort zone and insisted that I take on several leadership opportunities.  Over the course of my 8 years teaching at Holston, I served as team leader, ELA department chair, TAP mentor teacher, and summer school principal. I also taught in all 3 grade levels and served as the cheer coach for a number of years.  After teaching at Holston for 8 years, I was asked to move to Sarah Moore Greene Magnet Academy to help implement some of our amazing work there.  I served as an instructional coach at SMG for 6 years before accepting the position of assistant principal at Holston.  I am so thankful for the many experiences that one mentor afforded me by seeing more in me than I was able to see in myself.  I hope to be that same voice for others!


    My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, a Master's of Science degree in Elementary Education, and a Reading Specialist endorsement from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Additionally, I received an Education Specialist degree in Leadership and Administration from Lincoln Memorial University.  


    Personally, my husband and I have 3 grown children and 3 precious grandchildren.  We have taught Sunday School to encourage married couples for over a decade together.  We spend most of our free time spoiling our grandbabies or serving with our church family.
