Mr. Hollar

     My name is Mr. Hollar and my job as a teacher is to make sure we all have a successful mission into the world of learning. I first would like to welcome you to Carrie Knause Elementary, the home of the Sharks! I am so excited to start this voyage with you, and I will make sure we all reach for the moon; because even if we miss, we’ll land in the stars.  

     This is my fifth year teaching, and I could not be more thrilled. I graduated from Saginaw Valley State University with my Bachelors in Elementary Education, having minors in math and science. Before I started my journey in education, I grew up in a place called Clio, which is a little town just like yours. As I was growing up, I loved going to concerts, going to the beach, and spending time with my family.

     I believe that parent and teacher communication is very important to your child’s learning. If you ever need to get ahold of me I can be reached at the school, (989) 681-3535. If I am unavailable please be sure to leave me a message with your name and number. You may leave me a voicemail at ANY TIME, and I will return your call as soon as possible. Also, during after school hours I am more easily reached by email, which is: !

     Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I know we are going to have a blast together. I know that my future stars will be amazing and will do out of this world work. I have many ideas and activities planned that will make sure your child learns to love learning. In our journey together we will take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!
