Welcome to MS English

Hello - I am Linnie Ditsworth!  2021 marks my first year as English teacher for grades 7 and 8. Prior to that, I taught third grade for seven years and subbed here at Central Lyon for nine years! 

My family and I have lived here in Rock Rapids for the past 17 years.  My family includes: Marcus (husband), Xander, Xaccai, and Adelinne.  All three of our children are students here at Central Lyon.

I am the high school quiz bowl and large group speech advisor/coach.  There are many activities here at Central Lyon where students can be involved!  

Before moving to Rock Rapids, I lived in Minneapolis, where I was a fourth grade teacher for six years for the Minneapolis Public School System.

I am looking forward to a wonderful year of teaching here at Central Lyon!!
