Mr. Thomas Holtke

Welcome to the 2021 - 2022 school year.

It is my pleasure to serve the students, families and community of Pleasant Valley School of Engineering and Arts as Principal. This is my fifth year at PVSEA and I am thankful to be a part of the PVSEA Family and to have served the Pleasant Valley School District for the last sixteen years.
I completed my undergraduate studies at San Diego State University where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education. My Master of Arts degree in Educational Administration was earned at California Lutheran University.

I have been in the profession of education for twenty-six years. I have taught at both the elementary and middle school grade levels: kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th and 7th grades and served as the Associated Student Body Advisor teaching leadership to 6th, 7th and 8th graders. I am currently serving my nineteenth year in adminstration. 

I have lived in Ventura County for over 45 years and currently reside in Camarillo with my wife Jamie and family.  I am the proud father of three wonderful children: Carson (19), Charlotte (16) and Lily (1). 

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, surfing, snowboarding, running, fishing and gardening.

My office has an Open Door Policy. Please do not hesitate to drop by and ask questions to ensure your student's academic success!
