From the Assistant Principals
While the two of us work across nine grade levels, looking to support all of the learning, teaching, and culture building that happens during a day at Linden, we are repeatedly struck by everyone's successes, struggles, dreams, and questions. Hopefully, this blog will be a space where we can address and dig more deeply into our work, forcing us to understand things better and helping us to share it with you.
