Dorothy Linder Elementary School

Message from Principal Rodriguez

Welcome to a new and exciting year at Dorothy Linder Elementary!  It will be one of growing, learning and gaining new experiences. Linder has an amazing history of developing the whole child- academically, socially and emotionally.  Our dedicated teachers and staff strive to develop strong character in our students while providing a rigorous academic program to prepare our students for the future.  We are working hard to continue to build and strengthen our community involvement, and invite you to join our PTA! 

Linder is a school where we put all students first, “Every child, every day!”  Through our specialized programs, such as our bilingual program, Creative Learning Initiative, Social Emotional Learning, No Place for Hate, Gifted and Talented Education, STEAM programming, and UIL academic teams, to name a few, all students are challenged and encouraged to figure out solutions to real-world problems. 

Our students reach new heights with reading and writing and gain new insight into solving mathematical problems. Students learn to work collaboratively in groups and be dynamic problem solvers.  They experience the value of a team and learn to collaborate through the use of technology, as well as group work. 

Students at Linder have opportunities to get involved with programs such as our ACE after school programs, Safety Patrol, and PALS student mentor program which contribute to character development and campus leadership. 

Linder is also rich in the arts!  With our Mariachi Las Aguilas, choir, theatre, and arts classes, students have many opportunities to tap into their artistic sides. 

Our extensive programming and commitment to educating the whole child, validate and confirm the excellent education that Linder teachers and staff provide for students. 

I am looking forward to a great year and to seeing our students grow academically, socially and emotionally as they soar to new heights!  


Mrs. Rodriguez
