Principal's Message

Wendy Heinze

Wendy Heinze is the new principal at Linden Elementary.  Mrs. Heinze has worked with Linden Unified for 25 years.  She started with Waverly as a first grade teacher for five years.  Then she transferred to Glenwood where she eventually became site principal.  This year (eleventh as administrator), she is happy to be moving to Linden Elementary.  
Mrs. Heinze has resided in the Linden Community for over 35 years.  She and her husband raised their two children who attended Linden schools.  She has a seven year-old grandson who lives in Guam.
Watching families grow and flourish within this community is important to her.  Working in the community and school district has given her opportunities that she loves.  Over the years, she has been a soccer coach, worked on the Linden Youth Soccer Board, served on the Linden High Band Boosters, provided services for the Linden Cherry Queen event, and volunteered in the High School Football snack bar along with various activities within the community. 
Mrs. Heinze is thrilled to be at Linden Elementary and really enjoys time with each and every child.
