Linda McAllister, James Monroe MS

Linda McAllister has always had a passion for teaching science. In 1999, she was honored to be named Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce Middle School Team teacher of the year with her teammate Sandra Goldsborough.

Linda began her career as a teacher in Los Lunas at the middle school. She began working for Albuquerque Public Schools in 1995 at Jackson Middle School with Vernon Martinez as her principal. Most recently, she has held the head teacher position at James Monroe Middle School, again with Vernon Martinez as principal. She also has worked at Roosevelt Middle School, teaching seventh grade science and math.

She also worked at two charter schools in Albuquerque. She was hired as head teacher at East Mountain High School when it was getting started and special education coordinator/classroom teacher at Los Puentes Charter School in the North Valley, where she taught science, math, social studies and percussion for six years.

Linda and her husband of 32 years have two grown children. Their daughter lives in Mississippi and is a mathematician. Their son is a percussion director at Del Valle High School in El Paso.

Linda is very excited to be retiring and is planning a move to Europe in September. She would like to thank everyone who encouraged and supported her during her teaching career.
