Ms. Holfeltz's favorite EL Design Principle is “Success and Failure”. She believes that all students need to be successful if they are to build the confidence and capacity to take risks and meet increasingly difficult challenges. She also believes that it is important for students to learn from their mistakes, to persevere when things are hard, and to learn to turn failure into opportunities. Her favorite hobby is drawing and her favorite subject is Math. Her favorite places to go are the mountains and the beach. She loves to go hiking, camping, and fishing with her family. She also loves to go swimming with her little boy during summer break and working in her yard. She has worked with students from kindergarten – 9th grade before she came to Entheos. Ms. Holfeltz obtained her degree in Elementary Education through Western Governors University and she almost has her Master’s in Math.
