Mrs. Brockhaus

The 2021-2022 school year will be my 28th year of teaching at Holden Elementary. Teaching is a passion of mine, but raising my family is another. My husband, Curt and I have been married for 32 years. He works at Honeywell as an X-ray technician. He loves farming and spending time outside. Curt and I have five children. Our oldest, Ben is 31. He is employed at Honeywell in Kansas City also. He has two sons, Andrew and Levi, and a daughter, Sophie. My oldest daughter, Emily, is 28 years old. Emily is one of the high school science teachers.  She has two sons, Sawyer and Beckett.   My middle child, Molly, is 23.  She is the 4th grade teacher at Kingsville.  Molly has two children: a daughter, Charlotte, and a son, Jacob.   My youngest daughter, Abby, is 21 and attends school at Longview Community College.  You can see Abby at Jamie's Place on Sundays or F & C Bank working.  My youngest child is Brody. Brody is 11 and is in sixth grade this year.  He is such a joy!  Your child will be hearing a lot about my large family this year!

I look forward to an exciting school year working with your child and you.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, you can call me (816-732-6071 ext. 3003), send an email (, send a note, or send a ClassDojo message.  With your support, your child and I will have a memorable school year!
