Home / Third Grade with Mrs. Linkert


Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to third grade!  My name is Mrs. Linkert and I am so excited to be teaching third grade at Governor Wolf this year!  I can’t wait to meet all of my students and learn about all of their interests. I am sure you are curious about me as well.  Let me tell you a bit about myself.

I was born in Bethlehem and have lived here my entire life.  When I was younger, I was also a student in BASD. I have earned a Bachelors’s in Elementary Education as well as a Master’s degree.  I have a son named Isaac and many pets at home. My favorite subject to learn about is math, but my favorite subject to teach is science.  

I am looking forward to beginning this school year with you!

~Mrs. Linkert
