Mr. Hollowood currently serves as Treasurer for the Clark County Education Association, is a member of Staton Elementary School Organizational Team (S.O.T.) and has a firmly rooted science philosophy; “Young children love to ask questions. They have a natural curiosity about the world. Rather than focusing on memorization of facts, my science class focuses on helping children investigate their questions. Every scientific conclusion began as a mystery. Someone wondered something about the world, and they set out to investigate it. We explore the questions that led to the discovery of facts.”
In his personal time, Mr. Hollowood is an avid football and basketball fan of his alma mater, UNLV. As a former member (1989-1994) of UNLV's Star of Nevada Marching Band and Runnin' Rebel Basketball Pep Band, Mr. Hollowood continues his ongoing passion for music of all genres.
