Mr. Holden

Hello families! If you have requested or found that your child is placed in my class, I look forward to working with you so that we may empower your son or daughter. As it is stated in BMSA's Mission statement our goal is to facilitate your child into a life-long learner who is capable of collaborating, innovating and problem solving from our local to a global community.


The 2020/2021 academic year will mark my nineteenth year in education! In that time, I have developed my skill sets in part by having instructed pure G.T. classes at the fourth-grade level and sixth-grade social studies, science & PBL instruction. This year will mark my fourth year instructing at BMSA!


I have a loving and caring family that includes my wife Laura and my two middle-school aged children. We enjoy going on vacations that allow us to explore nature, rockhound and visit museums. Lincoln City on Oregon's coast is one of our most beloved destinations.


I enjoy reading in several fields including science, social studies, and encryption. 


Hints: In the cipher there are seven words and two punctuation marks. If you have tried and need additional aid look up the term rail fence.


I also hunt for treasures at thrift stores and other locales where I find many items including manipulatives and coins for our class!
