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!
