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
