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.
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)
