1 review for Esther Lindstrom Elementary School

  • Reviewed by Parent/Guardian on September 30, 2008
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Both of my children attended this school from Kindergarten through 6th grade. They have often told me about certain things that their teachers did that left a lasting impression with them. Now as adults and both elementary school teachers themselves, they understand the importance of connecting with kids and getting them motivated to learn. Many of these things were learned by them during their years at Lindstrom. They both are outstanding teachers and have been recognized by the districts they teach in for many of their contributions toward improvements on teaching methods and learning in the classroom. Much of the credit of their success goes to Lindstrom for its outstanding teachers.
