Mr. David Holmes
Welcome, Mavericks, to the Madison High School 2020-21 school year!
I was born and raised in Milford, Massachusetts, which is about a half-hour away from Boston. I graduated from high school way back in 1984 and briefly went to college before I decided to join the US Air Force. For 25 years, I had the adventure of a lifetime. In the 1990s, I was stationed in San Antonio and fell in love with it, however, the military forces you to move ... so move I did. I was fortunate to live in South Korea, Germany, England, Greenland and Alaska. I deployed to Saudi Arabia, France and Kuwait and have visited coultless other countries. When it came time to retire, I headed back to SATX and became a 5th grade teacher!
I’ll be teaching World Geography with Mr. Mularchuk. I’ll be learning along with you as it's my first year as a high school teacher. I’m stoked, as I hope you are too! I’ve seen a lot of this beautiful planet. I hope my experience, coupled with my enthusiasm for learning, makes this a fun, challenging and rewarding course for you!
I live with my girlfriend Lynda and my daughters, Veronika and Tara. We have two dogs, Tessie, the world's sweetest chocolate lab, and our puppy, Napoleon Dynamite, a scruffy, high-energy terrier of some sort. I enjoy rock and roll, jazz, live music, reading, and cycling. My passion is travel, and I usually plan my vacations around Pearl Jam tours.
