Hello, my name is Kathryn Linares and I am so excited to join the faculty at St. Edward. I have fourteen years of elementary school classroom teaching experience and I was an adjunct professor for Kaplan University. I taught online for almost three years. I have been a substitute teacher for the past six years, working between St. Edward and OLF. English Language Arts is an amazing field to work in this year. The class will be reading a variety of literature, crafting stories using the Jane Shaffer Writing Process, and refining skills in Grammar, Usage, and Mechanics.
I consider myself a lifelong learner. I have obtained a Master of Arts Degree in Educational Administration, a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science, a preliminary Administrative Credential, a CLAD (Cross cultural Language and Academic Development) certificate, and a California Clear Multi-Subject Teaching Credential.
My husband and I value a great Catholic education. Our daughters went to St. Edward and then to SMCHS ~ Go Eagles! We are parishioners at St. Edward and we are active in our faith and school community. I love to go to the beach, read good books, walk my dog, snow ski, and cheer on my girls!
