Welcome to 8th Grade English Language Arts!

  • Welcome, everyone! My name is Mr. Hockwater and I am the Literacy Specialist at Holland High School and 8th grade English teacher at Holland Middle School. I teach 9th-12th grade AIS ELA and 8th grade English Language Arts. I have several years of teaching experience in a variety of subjects and settings, as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Adolescent Education and English from Canisius College and a Masters of Education Degree in Literacy (Birth-12) from the University at Buffalo. I am so excited to be a part of the Holland family and help my students with their reading and writing. Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns. mhockwater@hollandcsd.org

Welcome Back to School!
