MS. ELIZABETH LINNING
I am so honored to serve Hall Elementary as principal! As an educator, it is important to me that each student knows they are an important and celebrated member of our school community. At school, I believe in challenging students, staff, and myself to continue to learn and grow each and every day.
I have earned a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in educational leadership, both from North Central College. My career began as an elementary teacher at a STEM magnet school, where I led students in inquiry-based learning and specialized in engaging students in engineering design projects. I have previous school leadership in the East Aurora School District, where I served as the district science and social studies facilitator and also as an elementary administrator.
Outside of work I like to spend my time baking and decorating cookies, hiking with my dog, and reading mystery books.
I'm looking forward to a great year at Hall Elementary. Go Huskies!!!
