Mrs. Holly Plunkett

Hi there and welcome to my page. I am Mrs. Plunkett and so glad to have you here. I have just finished my 29th year of teaching; completing my 25th year in LISD this past spring. The last 13 of those years I have spent right here at McAuliffe. 

I have been married almost 29 years to my husband Andy, who is the Chief of High Schools in our district. Needless to say we are both extremely busy, stay very  involved are very proud of our school district. Both of our boys went through school here. Our oldest, Logan is 24, and works for Five9 out of Silicon Valley remotely.  He graduated from Marcus in 2014 and Texas Tech University in 2018. Our youngest Landon, also graduated from Marcus but in 2016 and Harvard in 2020. He works for Houlihan Lokey in the restructuring department, getting bankrupt business back on track. Andy and I are thrilled that both boys are employed and ended up back in the Dallas area close to us.  We could not be happier.

We have 3 dogs, Rusty an 17 year old Jack Russell Terrier, Mitzi a 10 year old Maltese, and Tucker a 17 month old Goldendoodle. Tucker has given Rusty a new leash on life that was quite unexpected. We have been surprised and happy!  Both our boys played select and high school soccer, Landon played in college as well. We are very much a sports and outdoor family. We enjoy spending time together (with the dogs) as much as possible.
