About Mrs. Holtzhauser
Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Hilary Holtzhauser
I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Spanish. After teaching special education and Spanish for 3 years, I went back to school at NCSU to receive my Master of Education in Counseling with a focus on School Counseling. This is my ninth year as an educator, and it is my first year at Polenta Elementary. I am pleased to be working with your child this year and look forward to seeing them succeed and grow academically, socially, and emotionally. My caseload includes 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students.
A Little About Me:
I am married and have 2 young children. I have 1 yellow labrador retriever named Sydney. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, playing music, and going to the beach. Some of my favorite things are coffee, chocolate, and singing along to Frozen songs.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
