Northrop High School Foreign Languages
Amalia Kline Honduran by birth and American by choice, I met my wonderful husband of 30 years while I was teaching and coaching elementary students in my home country. We are the proud parents of a soon to be doctor. I hold an elementary teaching license from the Universidad Pedagogica de Honduras as well as a middle and high school licenses from IPFW. I love to spend time with family and friends, to travel, and to cook new and old recipes for whoever is willing to try some national and international dishes!
Michel Holland I grew up in Wisconsin and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Wisconsin with a B.A. in religious studies, French, with a vocal performance minor. I was admitted to graduate studies at St. Norbert College prior to completing my undergrad because of my academic record. I earned a master’s in theology and finished my seminary studies in 2007, at which point I was ordained a Catholic priest. I have taught middle school, high school and college level courses and I have served as assistant rector at a Catholic seminary, archdiocesan vocations director, and as Prior Provincial for the North American Independent Benedictines. In addition to teaching full time, I am also pastor of two parishes: Holy Redeemer Catholic Community, and Grace St. John’s United Church of Christ. Since I am apparently the first Catholic priest to serve as a Protestant pastor, I try to live the values I try to instill in my students: to live outside the boxes that confine and divide us and to work for harmony and unity. Education is the pathway to peace. I continue to teach in a public school setting because I believe wholeheartedly in the moral purpose and vision of Fort Wayne Community Schools
