Hello!  My name is Mrs. Summer Fahnholz (Fawn-holtz). This will be my 15th year teaching. This is my second year as an English Learners (EL) teacher.  Previously, I taught 2nd and 3rd grade at Standing Bear.  I have my Master's Degree in Reading as well as my ESL Endorsement.

I’ve been married for seventeen years to my wonderful husband, Kelly. We met over 20 years ago while we were both serving in the Army Reserves. We have two sons, Colton (7th) and Caden (5th), and a daughter, Claire (2nd). In addition, we have a wild, black boxer named Stella. They keep our calendar and hearts full. When I am not teaching, I really enjoy running, reading, paddle boarding and traveling!

I am very excited about this opportunity to be working with English Learners. I am OPS proud because I enjoy the students, the staff, and the atmosphere at Standing Bear Elementary. I look forward to working with you!
