• Welcome!

    I went to school at The College of Saint Benedict and received my Elementary Education Degree.  I also have my Masters Degree in Reading from Concordia University. This is my third year teaching at Hoover and I love it!  Previously, I taught at the Twin Cities International Elementary School for five years. Some students might remember me as Ms. Dettle last year but now am Mrs. Holland since I got married this summer.


    I live with my husband in Roseville.  We went to Italy and Switzerland for our honeymoon.  We have two rescue dogs, Brutus Wayne and Petey Parker.  They get spoiled with lots of hikes and kayak adventures.  

    I am so thankful I chose a job that I love coming to each day.  I hope to teach your child to love learning and to know that it’s okay to make mistakes (we all do and that’s how we learn).  We will turn “I can’t” into “I can try”.
