• Hello Holtzman! 
    My name is Michelle McGowan and I am delighted to welcome you to 5th grade!  This is my third year at Holtzman and my seventh year teaching overall.  I grew up in Harrisburg and actually attended this very school when it was known as "Herbert Hoover!"  After graduating high school, I lived and worked in Los Angeles and New York City before returning to my hometown to become a teacher.
    Outside of school, I love to perform experiments in my kitchen (i.e. cook), pretend to do yoga, travel with my husband and toddler, and visit the library/museums/historical sites/etc. I am absolutely passionate about learning new things and am excited to bring that passion into my classroom! I look forward to getting to know you this year.  Please feel free to contact me via Dojo, phone, or email if you have any questions, concerns, or compliments! :)
