3rd Grade

Meet Mrs. Holder

Teaching Background

My name is Wendy Holder and I am thrilled to be the 3rd grade teacher at ICT! This will be my 5th year at Innovation Centre Temecula and my 20th year of teaching. I truly enjoy being part of this amazing community of life long learners. Previously, I taught 15 years in the Jurupa Unified School District in the primary and upper grade levels.

Helping students develop a passion for learning and encouraging positive character traits is a big part of what goes on in my classroom. I believe in involving students in decision-making that fosters integrity and hard work. I encourage creativity, exploration, and hands on learning.

My education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in American History from the University of California, Riverside. I received my California teaching credential with a CLAD emphasis from Redlands University. I am highly trained in using SDAIE strategies, and hold an achievement certificate for Gifted and Talented Education. In addition, I received extensive training in incorporating and implementing technology in the classroom.

Personal Background

Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 19 years and our two sons. Together we enjoy bike riding, watching movies, playing board games, traveling, and going to theme parks. I also enjoy reading, running, surfing Pinterest, getting pedicures and manicures, and relaxing with a good cup of coffee.
