Welcome to AIS ELA!

  • 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!

  • Hi, everyone! I hope that everyone had an amazing summer and has been staying safe and healthy! I can't wait to see you all on campus! I know that this year will be challenging, but I know that we will get through it together. I have an exciting year planned for us in 8th grade ELA and HS AIS ELA. My goal is to make learning fun and for you to become better readers and writers.
