Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Lindi Arnold


My name is Lindi Arnold.

This is my third year at Canyon del Oro High School, but my 10th as a classroom teacher. I'm a lifelong Arizonan who attended Northern Arizona University for both my bachelor's degree and masters. Previously, I taught 8 years at another high school and jumped at the chance to join the CDO staff. I'm so excited to be a Dorado! I have always wanted to be in education, first as a theatre teacher, but I instead found my heart belonged to History. I am a self-proclaimed "History Nerd" and want to share my knowledge with my students.

I live in the district and 3 of my children also attend Amphitheater schools. My husband, children, dog and I love to go on adventures, visit our huge family and explore all the fun things Arizona has to offer. I teach Advanced Placement World History: Modern (WHAM for short) and standard World History.

I'm passionate about helping all students and giving them a safe and encouraging environment to grow into the amazing young adults they ALL have the potential to be. 

Defining Moment in Education:

My aunt inspired me to want to become a teacher. She taught junior high English and her love for the written word, for grammar, and for expressing herself made me want to share my passions with others too. I first wanted to be a theatre teacher, but fell in love with history through an elective course in college. I decided to combine the two and I approach teaching through historical storytelling. 

Core Educational Belief:

I believe my students are capable of great things. I believe all students can learn, but it is up to me to inspire, encourage, and support them in their educational journey.

Prior Experience:

My first teaching position was at Mountain View High School in Tucson, AZ. I taught there for 8 years.

My second teaching position is here at Canyon del Oro. This will be my 3rd year.


In my career I have taught:

World History (9th/10th grades)

United States History (11th grade)

United States Government and Politics (12th grade)

Advanced Placement: World History Modern Era (9th/10th grades)

United States History/American Literature Honors Block (11th grade)
