Linda Williams, Principal
I was born and raised in San Diego. I received my teaching credential and master's degree from SDSU. I have been teaching for 34 years. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family--especially my grandson!
I was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up in North Dakota and Arizona before coming to California. I attended San Diego State University and National University, where I earned my Master's Degree and GATE Certification. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children.
Hi! I was born and raised in New York and have lived in San Diego over 20 years. I received my undergraduate degree from SUNY at Buffalo and my Master's degree in Education from San Diego State University.
I was born and raised in Poway, California. Since I was 15 years old, I knew I wanted to teach. I spent
I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. I have been teaching at Wegeforth Elementary for the last ten years. Each year my love for teaching kids grows! When I’m not corralling my 3 year old and helping him choose stickers for his behavior chart (that does not workall the timeJ), I enjoy playing tennis, reading, and just being with my family and friends.
I was born and raised in San Diego. I received my teaching credential from San Diego State University. I have taught for 37 years with 26 of them here at Wegeforth.
I was born and grew up in San Diego. I’ve taught for many years and the last 8 of them have been at Wegeforth. I enjoy teaching! It’s special when “the light goes on” for my students. I love traveling and golfing in my extra time!
I was born in Waxahachie, TX (figure out where it is, how tosay it correctly and I’ll give you a prize.) I moved to Santee when I was 5 years old. I received my Bachelor’s degree from SanDiego State University. I received myMaster’s degree from Azusa Pacific University. I have taught for 25 years in San Diego Unified School District,including the last 15 years at Wegeforth. I have taught every grade (except Kindergarten) and served as a PeerCoach/Staff Developer for 5 years.
My most important philosophy about teaching is“to have fun while you learn!”
I live in Serra Mesa with my husband. I have two adult daughters and twograndchildren. When I am not teaching,you can find me spending quality time with my family, which might includewatching my grandkids play soccer, visiting the Zoo or Sea World, walking atthe beach, riding off road vehicles in the desert, rock hunting with my mother,shopping, travelling and so on. At home,you’ll find me working in my garden, reading a book, or working on my computer. I’ve been leading a BOOK CLUB with somefriends for almost 10 years.
San Diego is my hometown, though I’ve lived all over the United States and also in the United Kingdom. I received by Bachelors from San Diego State University and my Masters through National University. I’ve had the privilege of teaching since 1998.
“Not a day goes by in my classroom that I am not awed by the power of learning. Nothing brings me greater joy than witnessing one of my students, slight smile and eyes sparkling, in the moment of the great “a-ha!” – when that difficult concept finally clicks.”
When I’m not teaching, I can usually be found traveling to new and exciting destinations around the globe. Or else, you may find me several meters below the ocean’s surface, exploring the underwater world along with the sea creatures. Either way, my passion for learning drives both my personal life and my direction in the classroom. I cannot expect my students to develop a love of learning unless I maintain my own!
|I havebeen in the district since 2004, been a 'Building Services Supervisor for7 years now.|
I lovemy job and the challenges that come with it.
This ismy first year at Wegeforth, and am happy to be here and part of the team!
I ammarried with a 7 year old daughter and a 12 year old son, enjoy camping,hiking, and spending time with my family.
I am completing my 35th year with the school district, although, officially, I retired in 2009. I started out as a classified employee calling substitute teachers each morning for three years while I earned my degree and a teaching credential. I spent over 20 years as a classroom teacher teaching English and mathematics to middle, junior high, and high school students. I was a peer coach/staff developer for a short time before I became a mathematics administrator at three middle schools. I have been a vice principal at two middle schools and a principal at Wegeforth Elementary where I retired in June 2009. I have worked the last three years at Cubberley helping small groups of upper grade students improve their math skills. The past two years I have done the same at Wegeforth, and the past month I have added Alcott Elementary. I have retired, but I haven't quit working with children. I would like to continue to work as long as I am needed and I am healthy.
I've had the pleasure of teaching at Wegeforth since 1965. I retired from being an upper grade teacher in 2011, but my love of teaching quickly drew me back as a Support Teacher. Being able to engage with so many unique and wonderful students and teachers has been a dream come true. I've worked on many projects outside the classroom which benefit our students and I gained great knowledge each time.
Besides teaching, you'll find me sharing family time with my husband, cat, beautiful daughter and son-in-law and two awesome grandsons. During football season, I'm a fanatic Charger fan down to coaching from my living room to lightning bolts on my yellow Mustang. If you're quiet, you can hear me cheering from our home in Spring Valley. During my spare time, reading is a passion and I've written a children's book, a classroom manual and now I'm attempting a novel. To keep my motor running I work out in the gym four days a week. I truly believe that keeping one's mind and body healthy and active will keep you young.
I know I've had the joy of being involved in the best job on Earth, teaching our children. Maybe someday, you'll find me sitting on a warm beach under the sun, reading stories to a small group of children.
Iwas born in Chicago, Illinois, but my family moved to Santa Monica, California,when I was five. So I am really a “California Girl”. I did live in England,when I was eighteen, for about six months.
I studied ballet when I was a childand fell in love with dance. I studied dance in New York City and Los Angeles.I then attended University of California, Irvine- School of Fine Arts, where Iearned my BA and my MFA in Dance, with a teaching credential.
My first teaching assignment was atSCPA, (School of Creative and Performing Arts) where I taught for twelve years.Several of my students graduated to become professional dancers. Afterwards Iimplemented Dance programs in many of San Diego City Schools, K-12.
For many years I have also been anAdjunct Professor of Dance at Miramar College. My college students are veryinteresting and fun.
I have one grown daughter, who justgot engaged and will be married in February, in New Orleans! I love to travel.I have been to Mexico, (many times, to practice my Spanish) Costa Rica, Israel,England and Hawaii. I love animals, and have two rescued Siamese cats, who arevery playful.
In the summers I like to study moderndance and pilates. I like to swim in my pool, go to the beach, garden, cook,read, listen to music, travel and visit all the great places we have right herein San Diego.
I am happy to have the privilege ofteaching elementary students how to perform on stage. It is very rewarding tosee the excitement, self-confidence and pride they feel after performing infront of an audience.
Afterall, you never know which one of them might go on to be professional someday!
|I have worked in San Diego City Schools for 32 years. I have been at Wegeforth Elementary for ten years. Before coming to San Diego, I was a Children's Librarian in Beverly, MA. I helped put on library programs for the Beverly School for the Deaf. Even though I have no children of my own, I have always chosen jobs and careers that center around working with children.|
I was born in Leonardtown, Maryland which is outside Baltimore Maryland. My family moved to San Diego when I was five. I have always considered San Diego my home. I started volunteering at Wegeforth when my daughter started Kindergarten in 1985. I have been the library lady here at Wegeforth since 1987. I love reading to the children and helping them find and to borrow books from the school library.
