First Grade Team

Linda with her children

I’m excited and happy to be teaching first grade this coming school year! This will be my 18th year teaching 1st grade and 27th year teaching at Kendallvue. I was raised in McCook, Nebraska and graduated from Peru State College (in Nebraska,) student taught in Lincoln, Nebraska, and earned my master’s degree from the University of New England. I love Colorado and all that it has offered my family and me!

I have two grown children. My daughter, Kaitlyn, graduated from Metropolitan State College. She will begin her 3rd full-time position teaching 7th & 8th-grade math at Alameda High School this fall. Her passion growing up was riding horses at Westernaires with her friends and continues to ride her horse during the summer in rodeos and parades. My son, Blake, is a professional baseball player. He was drafted in 2017 by the Pittsburgh Pirates and has moved up through the minor league system quickly. He started in short-season A then went to long season A, Advanced A, AA and currently he’s playing in AAA with the Indianapolis Indians. We are confident he’ll make the next big step to the majors and fulfill his lifetime dream! When I’m not following my children’s events I like to visit family in Nebraska, walk my dapple dachshund-Kaiya, read, workout, & relax with friends.   

I believe experiencing a strong foundation in elementary school is key to success! I want and work to give that to every child in my class. My goal each
 year is to challenge students while instilling confidence in themselves that sets them up for trying new things, making new friends, and exploring their way through the learning process. I love what I do, because I get to see such tremendous growth in children in one year, as well as, follow them as they become young adults. It’s all about giving back what was given to me and was given to my own children as they got their education and became successful adults. I am so thankful to the teachers my own children had at Kendallvue and know you will feel the same!
