Math, Science


Hello, my name is Linda Penton.  I am originally from Wiggins, MS, yet have lived in Georgia and Louisiana before moving to DeSoto County in 1993.  Since graduating from Delta State, I have taught many elementary grades (K-6) in Laurel, Savannah, and Baton Rouge.  I began teaching 4th grade when first coming to Lewisburg in 2005 and absolutely love it! 

I believe that all students can learn and should be given many opportunities to be successful.  I strive to make learning fun and use varied techniques and strategies every day.  My goal in Math is to foster independent learning and a strong mathematical sense in understanding the relationship of numbers. My desire is that EVERY student will develop a confidence in "doing" math and "talking" numbers.

I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of your child's learning experiences.  I look forward to working with your child and you, the parent. I am excited to see the growth in each individual child throughout the year. Together we will make this a wonderful year!
