6th Grade, MS Social Studies
Mr. Tyler Soldat
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
~ Saint Augustine
Welcome to Social Studies! My name is Tyler Soldat and I am the sixth grade homeroom teacher at Holy Cross. I’ve lived in Portland on and off since 2009, including brief stints in Washington, DC and Eastern Washington State. I have B.A. degrees in both History and Religious Philosophy from Central Washington University, and M.A. degrees in World History and Teaching from George Mason University and University of Portland, respectively. The 2022 – 2023 school year will be my second here at Holy Cross.
When I’m not teaching, I’m hanging out with my awesome family in Forest Park or on Sauvie Island picking berries. My daughter is in second grade and my son is in kindergarten here at Holy Cross as well, so you may see them from time to time. I’m a big baseball fan and I would gladly talk your ear off about how disappointing the Seattle Mariners were in [insert any year after 2001 here]. I will be teaching a slate of classes in middle school, but if you are in sixth grade you will see me a lot!
Happy Summer Everyone!
I’ll be checking my email infrequently over the summer, but you can still reach out if you like. Between camping and family vacations throughout these next few months, I will be a bit busy. I hope everyone has a chance to relax, take time for themselves, and enjoy this weather. I look forward to seeing you all next year!
Our 2020-2021 school theme is LOVE bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1Corinthians 13:7
