Mrs. Kristina Holtquist

I am starting my 13th year of teaching Physical Education at Pleasant Hill.  My 1st year as Mrs. Holtquist...formally Miss Morton.  I have truly enjoyed every year here at Pleasant Hill School.  I love getting to know all the Pleasant Hill families.  I can’t imagine myself teaching anywhere else.  My favorite part about teaching is watching students achieve success after practicing a skill. 

As many of you know I got married this summer to Michael.  I now have a husband and two wonderful step children Kailey (9) and Evan (5). My new family loves sports and Chicago teams as much as I do. Michael is a huge Bears fan, Kailey a huge Blackhawks fan and Evan well he just loves them all! Needless to say if we are not watching a game we are playing a game.
