Please welcome our newest staff member, Holly Sheese. Holly will be joining us for the 2020-2021 school year.


Holly Sheese graduated from Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska in 2018 with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. Since then she’s been teaching grades 6-8 in Monroe, Washington. In 2017 she spent a year abroad in Egypt teaching 1st grade and co-teaching in the preschool. This is where she confirmed that education really was the job for her, as she loved seeing students shine when learning both academically and spiritually

She grew up in Coos Bay, Oregon with her parents, brother, and twin sister. She loves to go to the beach and walk the trails or just hang out. She also loves playing with dogs, reading, and hanging out with her family, friends, and husband Seth Sheese.

She and Seth are so excited to move back to Oregon and gain a community with you in Tillamook!
