Linda K. Newkirk

As a Science teacher for the last 33 years, I have enjoyed working with students, teaching them how to think and how to observe the science world around them. I have been with Union Public Schools for the past 34 years, which includes my student internship in Chemistry, Biology and Genetics,while coaching the Junior High Dance Team and assisting with the Union Highsteppers Dance Team. Then teaching Advanced Earth and General Science at the 8th Grade Center. I received my Bachelors Degree from Northeastern State University. As a Nationally Board Certified teacher for the past 11 years, I work collaboratively with the other Science teachers to strengthen the critical thinking skills of our students. I am married to Shawn Newkirk, teacher at 8th Grade Center- Pre-Algebra and Head Coach - for Varisty Baseball. I have a daughter, Sasha, a Senior at the University of Oklahoma - Dance Major and a Sport Medicine Major. I have a son, Hunter, a Sophomore at Coffeyville Community College on a baseball scholarship. Feel free to contact me by email or phone any time.
