Mrs. Sarah Holloway

Hello.  My name is Sarah Holloway.  

This is my eleventh year teaching Social Studies and my 5th year at Renaissance High School.  I absolutely LOVE my job; there are stressful times but I wouldn't change a single thing about it.  I truly enjoy working with the students of Renaissance High School.  

You could say I am an Idaho native, my parents moved to Nampa when I was two.  I grew up and graduated from Idaho schools.  I am a veteran of the US Navy and after a stint in the south, I moved back to Idaho to get my degrees.  

I am very busy outside of the classroom when I'm not a teacher. I am a wife, and  the mother of big, beautiful blended family and I'm starting classes to obtain my Master's in History.  

When I'm teaching I try to keep things light and funny, especially when teaching US History, ISU Concurrent Credit History 1111 & 1112, and IB History.  How many teenagers are interested in "old, dead guys" they don't remember and will never meet?  I believe that education should be fun and we should all learn from one another, so I use a lot of internet samples of current events, In incorporate student's opinion and perspective to delve deeper into discussions and my attempt this year is to get a couple "guest speakers" in my class to talk about historical and political impacts and people.  I know your student will learn a lot in my class, but I also want them to have fun and remember life lessons not just information.  

I am so excited to be a part of your student's high school career and hope that I can be an asset to both of you as the year progress.  Please feel free to contact me if you ever have questions, 

Sarah Holloway
