Mr. Hollar

Hello!  My name is Ben Hollar, and I am very excited to be joining Mountain View Elementary.  I graduated from Christopher Newport University with my Masters in the Art of Teaching as well as a bachelor's in history.  History is a passion of mine and I enjoyed learning the who, what, why, where, and when of humans throughout time for my major. I am a nerd for that stuff.  In my free time, I relax with my family and my pets.  I have two dogs, a shih-tzu named Oliver and an energetic mutt named Lucy.  I am a huge fan of the Capitals, and now that I am back home in the metro, I hope to see some games this coming year.  


Although short, my experience within the teaching profession has taken me to many different places.  I grew up in Western Loudoun and graduated from Woodgrove High School.  I also had the fortune of returning to Woodgrove to complete a class observation for a history class.  I student taught at a STEM school in Newport News with innercity students, which was one of the most fulfilling times of my life.  The students were full of such joy and a love of learning that it made my job easy to do just that.  I was also lucky enough to get an opportunity to work at a school in Dublin, where the classroom emphasized student ownership of the classroom and their learning.  Now I am lucky to be with Mountain View, where I hope to meld my experiences into my classroom alongside the Moose Way.
