GET TO KNOW ME…My name is Holly Rieschick and I began teaching at Auburn Public Schools in 2012. I teach 6th Grade Physical Education and Freshman Physical Education and Health. I am also Assistant Softball coach and Head HS Girls Basketball coach. I feel that Physical Education should be much more than rolling out the ball, it should be a time to strive to strengthen the mind and body, develop healthy attitudes about exercise, a time to learn to compete, have fun and learn to win and lose graciously with respect for your teammates and your opponents.
PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE…I was a Special Education and Physical Education para-educator for Falls City Public Schools from 2009-2012. Prior to 2009 I was a church secretary and also stayed home with my daughters. I taught Physical Education and Health at Table Rock–Steinauer Public Schools from 1994-1996 and my coaching experience includes MS and HS Volleyball, MS and HS Basketball and MS Track.
EDUCATION…I received my Bachelor of Science in Education, K-12 Physical Education/Health/Coaching in 1993. I graduated from Cozad High School in Cozad, Nebraska in 1989.
FAMILY…I am married to Ryan Rieschick who is a well driller in Falls City for Rieschick Well Drilling Company. We have three daughters. Maggy, my oldest, is interested in all sports and music activities. Meg is my middle child and she is mainly interested in athletics and her social life. Macy is my baby, and if you ask her sisters, they will tell you she is the spoiled child. Macy is interested in athletics and loves school.
HOBBIES…I enjoy working out, reading, and browsing through Pinterest in my spare time. I am an avid sports enthusiast! Some of my favorites (listed in order of importance) include Softball, Basketball, Tennis, Volleyball, Track, Football (college, not NFL) and all the activities we do in Physical Education. I love spending my summers at the ball fields.
I ADMIRE…I admire my parents more than anyone, they have been my rock and my support throughout my life. My favorite teacher was my high school science and anatomy teacher, Stan Mackowski. His passion and energy for his subject matter not only entertained me, but inspired me to learn more and become a teacher. If I had to pick a celebrity that I admire and would love to meet it would be Andre Agassi. His book Open is one of my favorite books.
CONTACT ME…You may contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or may call me at 402.274.4328. My planning period will be from 11:00-11:47 this year. My classroom is Room 102.
