Heather Jenkins, Principal of Linden Elementary School

Welcome to Linden Elementary School!

It is a real honor to serve as Principal here at Linden Elementary!

I began my teaching career at Linden in 2005. After spending 11 years in the classroom, I was named Assistant Principal of Linden in 2016. I had the privilege of serving as Assistant Principal for the next 7 years. My entire professional career has been spent serving the Linden Family and I am already looking forward to many more years!

At Linden, we are committed to working with each child and family throughout our school environment. The long tradition of our caring, compassionate staff and overwhelming parental and community involvement continues to contribute to our overall academic success. All students at Linden are challenged daily with strong academic rigor that is an expectation at every grade level. We have a continued focus on the “whole child” as we ensure that every student is prepared for college, career, and life success. We strive to provide an adaptive and challenging learning environment to prepare each student for excellence in education and the workplace.

Linden is known for the open and welcoming culture that permeates throughout the whole school. The feeling of being welcome in the Linden community is fostered by the school leadership year after year, and spreads to the individual teachers and staff. The willingness of our administration and teachers to engage with parents shows the strong desire we have to strengthen the school-community relationship.

We are thrilled to have each of you as a part of the Linden Family! It is going to be a great year!
