Jared Brooks says Holiday is by far one of his favorite teachers.
"He is very nice and he takes time out of his day," says Brooks. "Whenever he's in the classroom, he's really funny and I just appreciate him teaching us.
Holiday has been teaching for 23 years and says there's nothing he'd rather be doing.
"This is going to sound like it's from a movie, but I became a teacher because I enjoy helping people and that's the honest truth," says Holiday.
