Ms. Lindemann received her Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics, her Single-Subject Teaching Credential in Secondary Mathematics, and her Master's Degree in Education, all from Whittier College. She worked in the Whittier school districts as a substitute teacher before coming to Walnut High School as a full-time teacher in 2016. This year, she is teaching Geometry AB, Math Analysis Honors, and PLTW Computer Science Essentials.
At home in Claremont, Ms. Lindemann has a small poodle named Lennon (yes, after the Beatle), who she absolutely adores. She was supposed to get married this summer, but due to COVID, she and her fiance Jordan had to postpone their 2020 wedding for a year. She and Jordan didn't let that stop them, however, and in June they went to the courthouse to make it official, masks and all. Lindemann is her maiden name and she will continue to use it at school, but her new last name is technically Boeder, in case you see that name anywhere.
Ms. Lindemann understands the difficulties this year brings. As of right now, at least the first month of school will be taught online, which brings challenges socially, physically, and mentally. While education is important, Ms. Lindemann's top priority has always been the well-being of her students. If you need any sort of help during this hard time, academically or personally, please feel free to reach out. Right now is the hardest time to create relationships and meaningful interactions between teachers, parents, and students alike. It is crucial that everyone make an effort to communicate their needs and expectations, and it is so important that we all remember this situation is difficult for everyone involved. Please be patient with Ms. Lindemann as she navigates an unfamiliar and difficult situation, and she will do her best to be empathetic and understanding of everyone's different circumstances right now.
