Mrs. Linda Woodfield is the new CTE and Teen Living teacher at Springville Junior High. CTE is a seventh-grade class, and Mrs. Woodfield teaches the Family and Consumer Science part of the class. “I’m very passionate about the things I teach,” said Mrs. Woodfield. The Teen Living class studies individual development, communication skills, self-esteem, family relations, dating, teen pitfalls, teen pregnancy, and taking charge of your life.

Last year Mrs. Woodfield finished her student teaching at Springville High School, teaching Child Development and Needle Arts. Anenia Tuttle, a seventh grader at Springville Junior High, said, “Mrs. Woodfield is a fun teacher because she always has something fun to do!”

Mrs. Woodfield is new to teaching because she chose to spend her time raising her six children. All of her children attended Springville Junior and Springville High. Mrs. Woodfield’s favorite hobbies include sewing and quilting, crossword puzzles, gardening and food preservation. She also likes to learn foreign languages, especially Spanish.

Rebecca Elzinga, a seventh grader, said “I like cooking the most because we get to eat what we make!” Students agree Mrs. Woodfield is a very fun and great teacher.
