Holly Nease

Kindergarten Teacher

Holly was born in Newark, New Jersey and grew up in Altadena, California. She enjoyed swimming competitively and playing water polo for many years. Music was always a big part of her life as she played the piano and guitar. Being a Song Girl and making up routines was a highlight of her senior year in high school. While attending college at Point Loma Nazarene University, she heard the gospel preached in a fresh way and received Jesus as her Lord and Savior. She earned her B.A. in Early Childhood Education and received a teaching credential. Holly met and married her college sweetheart Brad at PLNU. She then earned a Master’s degree in Bilingual, Multicultural Education from Cal State Los Angeles.

Holly enjoyed teaching First Grade and Kindergarten in Pasadena Unified School District. She took some time away from teaching to raise a family with her husband. They have three amazing adult children and one son-in-law. Damon, Heather and Lauren are Westmont College graduates and Ben graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University. Their 3 grandchildren bring much joy and love into their family. You can find Holly out on her paddle board, working on her sewing machine, and creating her “Holly Wear” items found on Etsy in her spare time.
