Ms. Angela Haluska

“To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love, For it is in giving that we receive. . .”
~ from The Prayer of Saint Francis

My name is Angela Haluska and I am so excited to be a part of the Holy Cross Community! I grew up in Clackamas, Oregon and graduated from Portland State University with a degree in Child and Family Studies. While attending Portland State University, I was a goalkeeper on the women's soccer team (GO VIKS!).

I graduated with my Masters in Education from Portland State University in June, 2017. This is my third year teaching at Holy Cross, two years teaching 5th grade, and one year in kindergarten. There has been so much growth in all of the students already this year! We are all having such a wonderful time in kindergarten this year! We are learning how to read, write, add and subtract. We are learning all about God's world and everything in it! We are learning about our community, and the USA, as well as animals, how things go, and the sky!
