Meet the Teacher
Hi! My name is Ms. Linnell and I am SO EXCITED to be your third grade teacher this year! Our year is going to be full of new adventures as we learn so much together. I can’t wait to get to know each of you more throughout the year, but I wanted to first tell you a few things about me!
I am from San Diego, California and my house there is about 20 minutes away from the ocean. I am the second oldest of 6 kids, I have one older brother, two younger sisters and two younger brothers. My parents and two youngest siblings are still in California, but the rest of us are all in Utah so I get to spend a lot of time with them. After I graduated high school I moved to Provo, Utah and attended Brigham Young University (GO COUGARS!). I still don’t think I’m used to the snow!
This is my first year teaching and I am so excited that I get to share that with each one of you! I know that we are all going to work together to make sure that we all learn and do our very best each and every day. Our classroom is going to be a community where we will all feel safe sharing our feelings and making mistakes as we learn and grow together! I am going to need help from all of you to make sure everyone feels welcome and included.
I am so excited to be your teacher and can’t wait to see all of the magical things third grade has in store for us! Let’s make it a great year!
