Mr. Holzshu's 5th Grade

My name is Kurtis Holzshu and I am a fifth grade math and social studies teacher here at Midway. This will be my tenth year teaching fifth grade at Midway. I also spent three years teaching in Kissimmee, Florida before moving to Anderson. I am originally from Greenville, Pennsylvania where I was born and raised. Greenville is a small town north of Pittsburgh, PA. My father is an insurance agent and high school wrestling coach and my mother works at the high school.

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I also have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Thiel College, a Master of Education in Mathematics, and just earned my Gifted and Talented Endorsement from Converse College.

My wife, Lauren, is an Academic Success Coach at Homeland Park Elementary. We have two boys, Drew (6) and Will (1.5). We enjoy spending our time with our boys before they become to cool for us.
