A little about Mrs. Holland....
I went to high school at Ada-Borup, then went on to college at MSUM where I got my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a specialty in Middle School Mathematics. After graduating in 2003, I was a substitute teacher for about 1 1/2 years then began teaching 9th grade Algebra here at Ulen-Hitterdal. In 2005, I got a job teaching 7th & 8th grade Math and 6th grade Art at Cloquet Middle School (near Duluth). I was there for one year and then got a job teaching High School Math at Nay Ah Shing High School on the Mille Lacs Reservation (near Onamia, MN). While there I also had the opportunity to teach some college classes through the Fond Du Lac Tribal & Community College in Cloquet. I taught Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Intro to Statistics. After 2 years at Nay Ah Shing and Fond Du Lac, I went back up north and taught at the Duluth Edison Charter School. I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade math classes there. During the 2 years in Duluth I also met my husband and got married. Shortly after we got married my husband was transferred to a job at the Moorhead National Guard Armory so we moved back to the Felton area. I taught Preschool and 3rd grade at Ada-Borup before getting my current position here at Ulen-Hitterdal. I was very lucky to have student taught under Mrs. Rehder and then was able to work along side her for a couple of years before she retired. I enjoy my job at Ulen-Hitterdal very much and am very happy to have my own children attending school here as well!
My husband, Shane, and I along with our 5 kids live outside of Felton with our dog, Bailey, two goats, LaVerne & Shirley, 10 chickens, 4 guinea hens, and a few cats. Our son, AJ is in 6th grade and loves Legos and the Wings of Fire book series. Our daughter, Ellie is in 4th grade and loves Barbies, fidgets, and DIY projects. Oliver, the middle child, is in Kindergarten and loves sharks and other sea creatures and playing Minecraft. Our twin boys, Atticus & Emerson are coming up on a year old and love to eat and plan escape routes. I have three step kids as well. Reece and his wife, Jessie, and their daughter Harper, live just outside of Ulen. My step-daughter, Mackenzie, graduated from UND this past spring and is currently applying to grad schools. She is also a medic for the MN National Guard. My other step-son, Riley, lives in Duluth with his girlfriend, Janah, and they both work at Gordy's Hi-Hat in Cloquet. We have a very busy family and I love every minute of it!
Some of my hobbies are playing and teaching piano, reading and attending book club, quilting/sewing/crafts/baking - when I can find a few extra minutes, and spending time with my family!
