CONGRATULATIONS TO MS. HOLICKY / OUHSD TEACHER OF THE YEAR!!!!!

June 6, 2018 was a HUGE day for the entire Pacifica High School family. At the OUHSD Staff and Student Recognition Ceremony, our esteemed colleague, Ms. Allison Holicky, was honored as the OUHSD Teacher of the Year!!! Everyone in Triton Land truly believes that we are one of the finest high schools in Ventura County and Ms. Holicky is truly a major pillar of strength on our campus and one of the main reasons why PHS is an amazing place for staff and students alike.

First and foremost, Ms. Holicky is an AMAZING English teacher. Her passion for teaching is highly admirable. She truly loves her students and puts every ounce of her heart and soul into giving them a first-class education. Ms. Holicky is truly a pedagogical expert and an outstanding human being at the core of her soul.

Even though Ms. Holicky’s work in the classroom is enough to make her the OUHSD Teacher of the Year, her greatness does not end there. She dramatically impacts all facets of life at PHS and is a key player in all things related to curriculum and instruction.

Clearly, Ms. Holicky is a truly dedicated Triton and worthy of the highest recognition in the OUHSD. PHS loves you Ms. Holicky!!!
