Kennedy High School
Hello students, staff and families. My name is Josh Holforty and I am entering my third year of teaching and eighth year of working at Kennedy High School. I live in South Saint Paul with my wife Kiley, my daughter Ada (2 1/2 years) and my son Ellis (16 months). It is an honor to be teaching at this school as I am an '04 Kennedy grad. I finilized my teaching licensures in specific learning disabilities (SLD) and emotional behavior disorders (EBD), along with my masters in Special Education through Bemidji State over the past two years. I graduated from UW-Eau Claire in 2009 with a Kinesiology-Health Promotion degree and coaching minor. I have coached at Kennedy over the past seven years (Wrestling and Track and Field). 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!
