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, and I have been teaching here for 15 years. Over the years, I have taught 1st grade through 4th grade. This year, I am so excited to be back in second 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 my family or friends, I am involved with my church, hiking, traveling, reading, or gardening.
This is going to be a very exciting year full adventures and learning! I feel so privledged that I get to do what I love everyday which is teaching your child!
