Emily Holovics, Director

I started with CMLC in 2010 as a Preschool, then Kindergarten Teacher, and I'm currently serving as the Portland Director. I moved from Michigan to Oregon in 2008 and love the Pacific Northwest so much! I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Western Michigan University. I love incorporating art, music, and dance into lessons and curriculum as I feel these subjects enhance the learning objectives as well as make learning FUN! I have a passion for recycled art, hiking, traveling, and camping with my husband, friends, and family. I have loved my time with CMLC and hope to continue helping your children grow and blossom into the best humans they can be!

I have been teaching at Creative Minds since 2010. I was a Toddler Teacher for 5 years, then about 3 years ago I decided I wanted to try Pre-Kindergarten. I loved being with toddlers for the cuddles and adorable things they say, but also really enjoy seeing our Pre-K students have those “ah ha” moments. I feel so blessed to have found this school, not only for myself, but for my own two children. My boys are 1 and 6 and they have both gone to CMLC since they were babies.

My spare time is spent with my family. We love bike rides around the neighborhood, movie nights, and going to the park.
