While most Holden students learned math while keeping track of cattle, Miss Nanney is not used to the living in the sticks.
Miss Nanney is a student teacher for the art department. She is interested in FFA and the farm life since she never got to experience those things where she grew up.
Miss Nanney is part of the great Cardinal Nation, growing up in St. Louis where she went to Hazelwood West High School. Having around 450 to 500 kids in her graduating class was much different than what we have here at Holden. Miss Nanney likes the small community and how generous and nice everyone is. She says that Holden is, “a really nice school in a small town.”
Although she was originally interested in graphic design Miss Nanney has always been interested in art. She enjoys working with students and helping them to be more creative.
When asked what one thing she would change about the world of art, Miss Nanney replied, “I would help people realize how important art is.”
With a last name like Ressel, it’s hard not to choose the sport.
Mr. Ressel went to Kickapoo High before attending UCM where he chased his dreams of wrestling and was the mascot while pursuing his teaching career.
Mr. Ressel can be found in Coach Jones’ room where he is student teaching. He plans to volunteer his time to help coach the wrestling team this year while he is currently donating his time to the football team.
“I’d rather have a team with a losing record that carried themselves with class, than state champs that don’t know how to act,” says Mr. Ressel when asked about his philosophy on coaching.
He says that he likes how well the faculty and staff communicate here at Holden and that everyone seems to be “very professional.”
Although Mr. Ressel likes to brag about the poster featuring him at UCM on Coach Jones’ bulletin board, he really enjoys math and education.
