About Mike Holiday

I like technology, teaching, programming, hiking, and strawberry jelly filled doughnuts. I'm a pretty passionate lifelong learner. I went to school for that "math stuff" everyone seems to hate!

I'm a Christian and a homeschooler. Please don't confuse that with being close-minded. I like to think that I am very accepting. I love my children and want the very best for them.
