Welcome to Holland Language Academy

I firmly believe that the circumstances you’re born into shouldn’t dictate your chances for success. To me, there is nothing more personally and professionally fulfilling than when the product of my work is a child’s academic and social growth.
 
In addition, I believe that my background as a teacher and my ongoing role as a parent not only enable me to understand and meet the needs of both teachers, and parents, but ultimately allows me to serve the students and children of our community. My passion has always been and will be educating children.
 
I look forward to continuing to work in partnership with you as we serve the children in Holland Language Academy.

-Iliana Vasquéz
Principal
