My name is Lindsay Edge and I will be teaching 5th grade this coming school year. I have lived almost all of my life in Northern California, in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from San Francisco State University and a Master’s degree in Child and Adolescent Development from San Jose State University. I have worked for 10 years in San Jose Unified School District teaching, coaching other teachers, and, most recently, worked as a district instructional coach supporting our 27 elementary schools with writer's workshop. Outside of work I love spending time with my family trying new restaurants, playing in parks, and watching our 3-year-old discover the world. We have a goofy Australian Shepherd who was born deaf but encourages me to run and helped me train for the Nike Women's half marathon in San Francisco. I am extremely excited to join the Swigert community and meet my new class!
