Occupational Therapy

Deidra Holland, MSOTR/L, Ed.D


Ms Deidra
Hi! My name is Deidra (Ms Deidra to my students!). I am your occupational therapist. I received my Master's degree in OT from Western Michigan University in 2000 and a Doctorate from the University of Arkansas in 2007. I have worked for St Paul Schools since 2008.


I am married with two boys (16 and 19 years old.) We also have a cat and a dog.

My favorite activities are yoga, going for a walk with our dog through our neighborhood, bike rides with my family, and practicing Kung Fu!

I am very passionate about helping all students be active participants in their learning environment. Some students need help with fine motor/ visual-motor skills, some need help with self-regulation. Regardless of where they need help, I am there for them!

There are many excellent resources on the internet. Explore my Bitmoji classroom (image on the right) and click on different pictures to discover a few of my favorites.

Let’s have a wonderful school year!
