Mrs. Linda Gifford
Welcome to the Junction Family. My name is Linda Gifford and I love being part of the Junction staff. This is my eighth year of teaching. I have taught 2nd grade, Reading Intervention, and currently Transitional Kindergarten. I feel that I have found my niche in Transitional Kindergarten. I love the the innocence and wonder of these amazing children.
I am a Graduate of Sacramento State University with a BA in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Multi-Cultural Studies. I received my Multiple Subject teaching credential from Simpson University in 2007. I am currently part of the K2 stem grant and I love weaving the exploration of science and engineering into our curriculum. Fridays in Kindergarten/TK are a day of exploration including science, art, and cooking.
I grew up in the Redding area and I love living in the North State. My hobbies are spending time in the outdoors including camping, hiking, kayaaking and gardening. I love to explore nature and love sharing what I find with children. I look forward to meeting your children. Feel free to stop by and say hello.
