About The Teacher

My name is Julie Holderbaum and this is my 22nd
year of teaching English.  I taught for one year in southern 
Ohio near Portsmouth, Ohio before coming to Minerva.  I  am from Ohio 
originally, but my family moved to North Dakota and I graduated from West 
Fargo High School. I attended one year of college at the University of North 
Dakota before coming back to Ohio.  I graduated magna cum laude from The Ohio 
State University with a B.S. in Education and a minor in Family Relations and 
Human Development.  I obtained my Masters Degree from Marygrove College in 
2000. Currently, I teach Honors English I, Honors English II Lit, Honors American 
Lit,  and English III. My first husband Mike passed away in October 2006 from brain 
cancer. We have one daughter, Jamison, who is 14 and is a freshman. I got remarried 
this summer, becoming Mrs. Holderbaum and adding a husband, two stepdaughers, 
and a Chocolate Lab to my crew. 



Mission For The Class

While teaching English is highly important to me, as I believe writing and critical thinking skills will be invaluable to your child's future, I also believe that my job extends beyond the subject matter of English. It is my mission as a teacher to convey to my students that they are cared for, valued, and considered important and capable people. I want to inspire my students to feel confident enough to take risks in encountering new experiences in life, and I want to teach them to be compassionate, responsible adults. Lastly, I want each student to feel empowered to take control of his or her destiny by making healthy, wise choices on a daily basis. I truly believe that together we can instill your child with a sense of self-esteem so badly needed in today's world.
