Ahoy Me Hearties!

My name is Karla Lin and I will be your child’s third grade teacher this year. This is my 24th year teaching for the Glendora Unified School District and 25th year teaching overall. I joined the Cullen staff in 2008, and before coming to Cullen, I worked at Williams Elementary School up until a year before it closed. I am so blessed to teach in a wonderful school district with such supportive colleagues, parents, and students who are eager to learn and grow. I truly love my job.

I grew up in Alhambra, Ca., and I graduated from Cal State University, Los Angeles with a major in Early Childhood Education. I come from a family of teachers. My grandmother, aunt, and father are all retired teachers and they have been my mentors and the people who inspired me the most to continue in the family tradition. They taught me the importance of providing my students with a classroom in which there is respect, responsibility, obedience, and most of all an atmosphere where individual strengths and unique differences are celebrated.

I have been married to my husband Chris for the past 21 years, and we are blessed with two beautiful girls who also go to school in the Glendora Unified School District. Morgan is 17 and is a Senior at Glendora High School and Jayden is 15 and is a Sophmore also at Glendora High School. Our household pets include two dogs, Maxx and Sadie, two guinea pigs, and a tank full of exotic fish.

I am looking forward to an enjoyable and successful year with your child. In order to maintain a healthy learning environment, I strongly believe that life-long success in school begins with self-discipline and the ability to take responsibility for one’s own choices and actions. Your child deserves the best educational learning environment while at school. I hope you enjoy being a part of my crew this year and together we will soar the uncharted territory of third grade.
