Meet Principal Elizabeth Linares

 

 

Woodcrest Spanish Immersion is a community that is truly dedicated to personalizing learning. That theme courses through every part of our work together. I'm proud to be a part of that, as a leader and a learner.

 

 

What is the best part of your day as key leader at Woodcrest?

There are so many moments during the day that leave me feeling fortunate for having this job. If I had to choose one, I'd say it's the beginning of each day when I get to greet students as they arrive at Woodcrest. It's a "fresh start" that we get every day and often the time when I get to connect with individual children about what they're wondering about, and what they're most excited about.

What is your favorite thing about Woodcrest?

That's easy. It's the kids. District-wide we have made a promise to know each student by name, strength, interest, and need. Each day I have the opportunity to be challenged, inspired, and surprised by what the kids are sharing with me. The fact that I get to do that in two languages makes it even more amazing.
