Anjali Sundaram, Reporter

This year CPHS received 3 new additions to staff: Donna Holman, English, Ian Edgeley, Elective, and Babette Riedmueller, receptionist. Here are some interesting facts to get to know the new staff.

Donna Holman

New to Cedar Park but not to teaching, Holman is entering her 24th year of teaching and coaching. Holman is teaching English 4 and coaching Basketball and Track this year for Cedar Park.

Q: Why do you like what you teach?
A: I love teaching and coaching because I want to show kids that living the good life and staying on the right path leads to a fruitful life.

Q: What extracurricular activities were you involved in during High School?
A: Basketball, track, and softball.

Q: If you had the ability to do anything what would you do?
A: I’d want the ability to stop drug use and child abuse.

Q: What is your must-have item when teaching?

Ian Edgeley (pronounced Edge-lee.)

Mr. Edgeley is the new Pre-AP Computer Science I, Video Game Design and Robotics teacher and is only here on A days while spending his B days at Vista Ridge.      

Q: What college did you go to?
A: Southampton University in the UK and Texas State University here in the US.

Q: What’s your favorite kind of student?
A: So many students come to my classes saying things like “I’m really not good with computers, I don’t know why I took this.” I love those students in particular because by the end of the year, they’re making programs and websites and games like it’s no big thing, and they don’t even remember how little confidence they had just a few months earlier.

Q: If you could have any superpower what would it be?
​A: Time travel would be great. Go back and punch Hitler, etc.

Q: What would be your spirit animal?
A: A house cat. Sleeping for 23 hours a day? Count me in.
