Ms. Dougherty

I have taught at Parkland for 21 years. I am a mom of 3 so they keep me super busy! Theresa (20), Grace (13), and Jacob (11). Spending time with my kids is one of my favorite things to do! I am a huge animal lover and have quite a few pets which include my dog Toby, 4 cats, 2 guinea pigs, and some fish. Some things I enjoy doing are working out, hiking, reading, playing board games, and spending time with my family. I have 6 nieces and nephews and really cherish the time I spend with them.

Mr. Quick

This will be my first year here at Parkland and I am very excited to begin my journey here! I previously taught high school in a different district and am already feeling at home here at D15! I got married in 2020, right before the pandemic, to my wife Sam. We have a beautiful baby girl, Kaydin, who is almost 1 and a dog, Wrigley. Outside of school I love to be outside, golfing, bowling, running/working out, and hanging out with my friends and family. I am looking forward to this year and helping your children grow both inside and outside of the classroom!

Hi Vikings! My name is Mrs. Holiday. This is my 10th year teaching at Parkland and I absolutely love it! I will be teaching Math and Language Arts, along with co-teaching Math with Mr. Quick and Social Studies with Ms. Dougherty. Outside of school, I have two children of my own, Cole who is 4 and Celine who is 1. They keep me busy and laughing! In my free time I like to spend time with my family and bake sugar cookies! I can’t wait for this school year!

Miss Ostberg

This is my 13th year of teaching and my 13th year here at Parkland!  I have spent my entire career in Mchenry, and I'm so thankful for that! I love teaching language arts, and I really enjoy working with you 7th graders! 

In addition to teaching, I coach Cross Country at Mchenry High School, the Mchenry Youth Running Club in the summer, and the Parkland Winter Running Club! 

I'm a dog mom to my adorable and sweet pitty puppy, Buddha, and I’m currently planning my wedding! In my free time I like to run, hike, workout, decorate my home and do DIY projects, read, travel, and spend time with my family and friends. I'm looking forward to our year together!
