Dorothy Linder Elementary School


At Linder, our Lifeskills education program is dedicated to equipping students with the essential skills they need to thrive in their personal lives, careers, and communities. Aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), our curriculum focuses on developing practical skills and fostering personal growth.

In the area of Personal Financial Literacy, our Lifeskills education emphasizes the importance of financial responsibility and planning. Students will learn how to manage money effectively, make informed financial decisions, and understand the implications of credit and debt. Through real-world scenarios and interactive activities, we aim to empower students to navigate the complexities of personal finance confidently.
Health and Wellness education is a vital component of our Lifeskills program. Students will explore topics such as nutrition, physical fitness, mental health, and the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. By promoting healthy habits and providing knowledge about the human body, we strive to empower students to make informed choices and prioritize their overall well-being.
Career Readiness is a key focus of our Lifeskills curriculum. Through career exploration activities, students will gain insight into various professions and develop an understanding of the skills and knowledge needed for different career pathways. We provide resources and guidance to help students set career goals, develop job-seeking skills, and understand workplace ethics and expectations.
In addition to these core areas, our Lifeskills program also addresses interpersonal and communication skills. Students will learn effective communication strategies, conflict resolution techniques, and teamwork skills. We aim to foster strong interpersonal relationships and equip students with the skills needed to collaborate, lead, and contribute positively to their communities.
Furthermore, our Lifeskills education places an emphasis on digital literacy and responsible technology use. Students will learn how to navigate the digital world safely, critically evaluate online information, and use technology as a tool for communication, research, and productivity.
Through a comprehensive and practical approach, our Lifeskills program prepares students for success beyond the classroom. By focusing on personal finance, health and wellness, career readiness, interpersonal skills, and digital literacy, we aim to empower students to become informed and responsible individuals who can navigate the challenges and opportunities of the modern world.
