¡Hola a todos! My name is Jim Linos and I am very excited to be entering my 2nd year in the Whitewater Community this year. I have 24 years of experience teaching all levels of Spanish (1-6), spending 15 years in Georgia prior to my arrival in Whitewater in 2015. I am no stranger to southeastern Wisconsin as I am a graduate of Beloit College and I spent some of my early career teaching here in Wisconsin (Lake Geneva and Beloit).
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Modern Languages and Literatures at Beloit College in 1990 and my Master's in Teaching of Languages at the University of Southern Mississippi in 2005. As well, I have earned several certifications with USA Volleyball. Over 24 years I have coached different levels of not only girls' volleyball, but also softball, girls' basketball, soccer, and girls' lacrosse, including helping lead the middle school volleyball Whippets in 2015.
This year I am teaching Spanish 2, Spanish 3, and Spanish 5. As well, I am coaching 8th grade volleyball at the Middle School, on which my elder daughter will be a member. I also have a younger daughter who is a fifth-grader attending LINCS.
I am proud to be a part of the Whitewater educational community and look forward to working with its students, parents, and, of course, my fellow colleagues in the high school.
