Welcome Our New Principal: Mr. Tesch
Mr. Bryan Tesch is Holt Elementary's newly appointed principal. Read on to learn more about him!
I am Bryan Dan Tesch, the newly assigned principal of Holt Elementary School. I have heard great things about Holt Elementary – in regard to the students, the parents, the faculty and staff, and also the community at large. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with you and serve you while continuing the great things that are happening here!
Now some information about me…
I was born and raised in Washington Terrace, spending a few years in Wyoming when I was young. I am the second of four boys in my family, and am the only child in my family that went into the field of education. I come from a long line of educators, with my grandmother and her sister teaching for a combined total of over 100 years! Both of my parents started out as educators, with my dad as a high school principal in Wyoming at the same school where my mom taught English and Typing/Short Hand. When we moved back to Utah, by dad became an English teacher at Wahlquist Junior HS in Weber County for the remainder of his career. When my mom returned to teaching, she taught first and third grade at Vae View Elementary in Davis School District for the remainder of her career.
After high school, I received by BS and M.Ed. degrees from Weber State University in Elementary Education. I later attended Utah State University to receive my Administrative Endorsement.
I started my teaching career at Adams Elementary teaching first grade. I then transferred to Sunset Elementary and continued teaching first grade. After several years at Sunset Elementary, I transferred to West Clinton Elementary and taught first, third, and fifth grade. I then became an administrative intern for five years, working at several different schools. I have been a principal for 11 years, serving at both Farmington and Kaysville Elementary, and have been in education for 22 years.
I am married to my wonderfully supportive wife, Becky, and we have two children – Sarah who is ten and Daxton (we adopted him from foster care) who is six. I have two children from a previous marriage – Sydney who is 20 and Tyler who is 18. We enjoy spending time together boating, watching movies, and playing games. We currently reside in Clinton.
Thank you for the warm welcome I have already received from those that I have already met. I am looking forward to many positive years as a Holt Hawk!

I am Lisa Larkin, the new Assistant Principal at Holt Elementary. I feel lucky to have the opportunity to work with such wonderful students, parents, faculty, and staff here at Holt.
A little about me…
I was born in Ogden and have lived in Davis County all of my life. Post high school, I attended Brigham Young University and graduated with a BS degree in Elementary Education from Weber State University. I received a M.Ed. degree, as well as Administrative Endorsement; both from Utah State University.
I started teaching school over twenty years ago. I was a teacher for twelve years in grades three through six at Layton, Creekside, and Sand Springs Elementary Schools. After my teaching experience, I worked as an elementary mentor for new teachers in Davis District, and as an English Language Arts Coordinator for teachers. Next year will be my fifth year as an assistant principal.
I enjoy being with my wonderful family which consists of my husband Ryan, three wonderful daughters, and a darling Yorkie puppy Gigi. We love to vacation in Hawaii, Disney World, and Disneyland, and spend all of our free time together watching movies, reading books, taking walks, going out to eat, and having fun as a family.
I am looking forward to many happy and productive years here at Holt and feel fortunate to be part of this great school with its tradition of excellence!
