Hello! My name is Lindsay Callihan and I teach at Winton Middle School. I teach 8th grade ELA/ELD and US History. I am not married and do not have any children, however, I do have two dogs and a cat! :) I am the youngest of six children. I attended Merced Junior College, where I attained my AA. I then transferred to UC Stanislaus where I received my BA in Liberal Studies. I finished my student teaching during the time when a lot of teachers were getting pink slipped. Therefore, I spent the next six years juggling two jobs (substitute teaching and working as an optometric assistant). I finally got hired on as an in-house/support teacher, at Winton Middle School. The next year I was offered an 8th grade position. This is now my fourth year teaching 8th grade and I really enjoy it! In my free time I hang out with my family (and my pets!), make dolls, or search Pinterest for healthy recipes to try out. I have really gotten into nutrition and try to exercise at least 4-5 times a week.
