Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Linda Young and I teach kindergarten. I have taught first and second grade and have developed and taught a program called "Arts in the Attic". "Arts in the Attic" brought language arts, science, and social studies together with art, drama and music.
Teaching has always been my passion and I am thankful that I get to do what I love. Imagine, I am witness to children who read for the first time! The widening of their eyes says it all.
My mission for the class mirrors the Winthrop Public School’s Core Values which are: "To develop high self-esteem in all students, to respect human differences, to encourage high academic achievement from all students and to support the centrality of the classroom." It is my hope to achieve and instill these values in a fun, happy and exciting way.
