It happens every year and this year is no different as student teachers take over classes to finish up their college degrees. One such student teacher is Ms. Hemmer, who is cooperating with Mrs. Olson, senior English teacher.

 

    “I have not always had an interest in student teaching or teaching in general. I realized I wanted to be in the field of education when I got a job on the UNK campus as a writing tutor. I would help students almost every day to improve their writing and realized from this how much I liked being there to help people in their academics,” said Ms. Hemmer.

 

    According to Ms. Hemmer, no one directly inspired her to be a teacher. She had excellent Spanish and math teachers in school, and college professors that encouraged her.

 

    “I chose English because I had always loved to read books. I excelled in my English class in high school and had ambitions of being a writer. English seemed like a good fit. I also chose Spanish for the same reason. Both of these areas of study have allowed me to understand the world better and explore different cultures,” said Ms. Hemmer.

 

 

On Monday, January 28, a group of students went to UNK Honor Choir Festival.

The Holdrege High School students that attended were:

  • Jenna Schroeder
  • Mady Fritsche
  • Hannah Hofaker
  • Nikki Knoell
  • Elizabeth Drews
  • Wyatt Hornaman
  • Jakob Hansen
  • Alec Lovitt
  • Jessica Swift
  • Kamryn Lynch
  • MaKayla Harper

“My favorite part of UNK Honor Choir was not only when the music started coming together, but also how many friends I made in the process. I was all just an amazing experience for anyone who enjoys music,” said Nikki Knoell.

 

On Thursday, January 31, a group of HHS students went to the UNO  BOCH Festival.

The Holdrege High School students that went were:

  • Elizabeth Drews
  • Aaron Drews
  • Alec Lovitt
  • Jenna Schroeder
  • Mady Fritsche
  • Morgan Fritsche
  • Hannah Hofaker
  • Kamryn Lynch

“My favorite part was the concert because it’s amazing to hear the music we can put together in three days and because it was special to me. I have been doing UNO honor choir for four years so the concert was a great way to finish,” said Elizabeth Drews.
