About Mrs. Holck

At Evergreen Academy since 2006

Education: BA The Evergreen State College with focus on academic research and research design.  Currently working on a Masters of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University.

Experience: Prior to teaching, I worked two years in the Daniel J. Evans Library at The Evergreen State College and five years as a Research Data Coordinator with the University of Washington Osteoporosis Research Group managing data for up to twelve Phase III Clinical Drug Trials and co-authoring academic research papers. In my summers off from teaching I have done Scratch programming enrichment camps here at Evergreen. I am also an author and currently have one published book: Images of America, Leavenworth (Arcadia Publishing).

Passions/Interests: One of the best things about being a technology teacher and librarian is when former students visit and tell me how much they appreciate everything I have taught them. I love knowing that when students move on to the next step in their educational career they are ready and able to use the library and technology resources available to them to further their learning. I have also been working with computers and programming since I was about 9 years old, so I enjoy integrating that knowledge into my day to day interactions with students. Another of my favorite things is getting kids excited to read whether it be by reading aloud to them, helping them find books in our library or making sure they each visit the annual Scholastic Book Fair. I am also an avid reader, writer, and researcher. On a personal note, I have been married to my husband Jim for 26 years and we have two beautiful daughters (who used to attend Evergreen).

Keyboarding Websites

  • DanceMat Typing — I have used this one for grades K – 2 in the past.  I will be using Keyboarding Without Tears now, but this would be great practice at home.  No account needed!
  • Typing.com — I have used this before for grades 3 and up.  We will not be using this in class any longer, but I have made sure that each child has an account set up for home use.
  • Keyboarding Without Tears — I use this for grades 1 – 5.  Kindergarten integration coming soon!
