Principal's Corner

Greetings from your Glenwood Principal!

  Glenwood School is a wonderful, rural school. Glenwood is focused on student leadership to help nurture student independence and motivation to be the best student they can be.  We participate in the Leader In Me program.  Teachers work efficiently to challenge students academically and help increase engagement in lessons.  Teachers are inspiring student's curiosity to learn. Our learning community is dynamic and motivated! It is this experience of instilling leadership in children that makes me proud to be part of Glenwood's educational team.
  During my career with Linden Unified, I taught for 15 years, and performed functions on most of the committees at and for the school. As Principal for eight years, I feel that Glenwood is my home.  I try to learn every child's name and I truly care for each one. 
  My family and I live in the Linden area. My own children were successful Linden students who now have college degrees and are either working in their field or continuing education.
  As an educator, I look for successes in every child. Each student should have an opportunity to be the leader of their learning. We hope you will look forward to their return from school each day and find them full of enthusiasm for what they have accomplished.
  I look forward to continued successes at Glenwood School for your students. Educational opportunities are growing for students, and I expect great accomplishments from each of them. The Glenwood staff is enthusiastic and motivated to see each of your children find the leader that lives within them.
