Mr. John Farkas
I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is John Farkas and I will be teaching eighth grade science to your child this year. I graduated from Western Michigan University with my Bachelor’s Degree and received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Wayne State University. I have worked for Livonia Public Schools for the past 24 years. I taught sixth grade at Adams Elementary for ten years and taught for two years at Cooper Upper Elementary. This is is the start of my 13th year at Holmes and I am looking forward to another memorable one!
A few interesting facts about me:
- I am adopted
- I have studied two different forms of martial arts
- I have over 1,000 items in my PEZ collection
