“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!
Welcome to 2022 - 2023!
This year is shaping up to be a great one here at Holy Cross. I'm excited to be teaching numerous classes for middle school this year as well as leading our 6th graders for their Outdoor School adventure in October. I'll be teaching the following classes this year:
- 6th Social Studies (world history)
- 7th Social Studies (world history)
- 8th Social Studies (US history)
- 6th Seminar
- 7th Seminar
- 6th Technology
- 6th Elective
This year we have a FULL WEEK of outdoor school sponsored by Portland Public Schools. I will send updates as I learn more about the location, dates, and times.
