Welcome to 2nd Grade
Linda Farnell

Dear Students, Families and Community Members;

Hi!  My name is Linda Farnell and I teach 2nd grade at Loring Elementary.  I have been teaching in Minneapolis for 28 years, and at Loring for 6 years.  I received my B.S. in Elementary Education, and also my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.  I have 2 children. My daughter just became a PA in Florida.  My son recently returned from travelling Asia and Europe for a year, after graduating with a degree in Environmental Science.

I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing summer!  I know I did!  I also welcomed a new pug puppy into my home to join Lily, my elderly pug.  This adventure is just beginning, so I am sure your children will be hearing continuing stories about him!

I look forward to meeting your child, yourselves and our classmates!  I look forward to a year of meeting new friends, learning new things and asking more questions!  I look forward to us being partners as your child grows!

Please feel free to stop by, send a note, call or email me with any questions or concerns. My email is linda.farnell@mpls.k12.mn.us. I would really like a parent's email, too.  I look forward to another wonderful year here at Loring Community School!
