Meet City SchoolsLinda Chen, Chief Academic Officer
City Schools employee since... July 2014.
My first job in education was... Many! I taught Sunday school in high school and pre-kindergarten part-time in college.

We selected him because he was very focused on the needs of students and wanted to thrive in a community that engaged in collaborative learning. Over the years, we have stayed in touch, and he is now an assistant principal and ready for the principalship!
