Mr. Cody Holt
I was fortunate to start my teaching career in 2014 at Smithville Middle School after being a volunteer assistant coach for the baseball team. After three great years at SMS, I moved up to the high school in 2017. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Shaya, and my son, Gus. We live in the country in Holt, MO.
I enjoy teaching because it prompts me to continuously think critically and learn new ideas and concepts. I also enjoy helping students realize the value of reading and asking questions.
This year, I am teaching Literature of Social Change, Literature and Film Studies, Creative Writing, and ELA II. I am also serving as a Kagan Coach, Junior Class Sponsor, and National Honor Society Sponsor. I coach high school baseball and middle school basketball.
I will be an 11th grade Warrior Time teacher. I am Warrior Strong and we are better together.
