Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Linda Westenhiser

I am one of the fortunate people who get to change directions and careers later in life to follow their dream. I returned to college and attended the University of Texas at Dallas to complete my bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with my certification in Early Childhood through Fourth Grade. I also have my certification in ESL. 

My teaching career began at Harrington Elementary when I student taught in third grade. After completing my student teaching position here, I was hired to become a 3rd grade teacher. The following year I moved to 2nd grade and after several years in 2nd grade, I moved to the 1st grade team. After teaching 1st grade for many years, I made the move to 4th grade! 

I have  2 grown children, Casey and Jessica, who are both married and have given me the most delightful 4 grandchildren!  When I am not with family, I am involved with my church, hiking, traveling or gardening.  

This is going to be a very exciting year full of challenges and great learning for everyone!
