Kennedy High School


Hello students, staff and families.  My name is Josh Holforty and I am entering my second year of teaching and seventh year of working at Kennedy High School.  I live in South Saint Paul with my wife Kiley, my daughter Ada (22 months) and my son Ellis (4 months).  It is an honor to be teaching at this school as I am an '04 Kennedy grad. I just finilized my teaching licensures in specific learning disabilities (SLD) and emotional behavior disorders (EBD), along with my masters in Special Education through Bemidji State.  I graduated from UW-Eau Claire in 2009 with a Kinesiology-Health Promotion degree and coaching minor.  I believe all students have inherent worth and that all students have the ability to learn when given the right supports and resources.  I have grown to love the students and staff at Kennedy and am looking forward to the school year.
