Linda has been teaching 3rd grade for 11 years, but only 3 of them have been in Westport.  I know this because my daughter had Linda for 3rd grade the first year she was here in Westport in 2002.  We were lucky.  She is a warm and caring teacher that made a huge impact in my daughter’s academic life.  Congratulations Linda and good luck in the state competition.  We are rooting for you!!

Congratulations Linda.
I am a real senior and I still remember my third grade teacher. Teaching is a nobel occupation and I hope you stay teaching for many, many years. Don’t let the administration get to you.
Lots of luck to you and keep up the good work.
The best to you,
Al Balas
