Mr. Lindner

My name is Mr. Lindner.

I teach Health/Physical Education and graduated from Adrian High School and then received my degree from the University of Sioux Falls, Moorhead State.

I worked in the Sioux Falls district for 9 years and then started working in the Worthington school district in 1999.

The thing I enjoy most about teaching is being able to help students and seeing them be successful in later years.

My first teaching experience was substitute teaching in Worthington before I received a job in Sioux Falls.
