Hello everyone! My name is Ms. Holland and I am so looking forward to the upcoming school year! I am the new 8th grade science teacher here at Patton Jr. High and look forward to this wonderful experience and getting to work with your students.
Teaching has been a large part of my life for years. I have three younger sisters and so I have been teaching people since a young age. I have taught swimming lessons for 8 years as well as Sunday school for 10 years. I was the head swim coach for the City of Overland Park swim team this past summer so spent a lot of time working with kids and coaches.
I came up through the Blue Valley School system and by doing this I was afforded the opportunity to do some student teaching while I was in High School. I attended Emporia State University and graduated with a degree in Middle School Science education grades 5-8 and Physical Education Pre-K to 12.
As stated previously I am looking forward to a wonderful school year and know that this will be a great year for all of us! Feel free to contact me at any time!
