Principal Message

  • Greetings Acton Parents and Community,

    It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you introducing myself as the incoming Acton Elementary principal.  I consider it an honor to join the Duncanville Independent School District and the Acton family.  I want to extend a warm greeting as I look forward to working alongside you in dedication to writing success stories for all of our students!

    I come to you with over 20 years of educator experience at the elementary, middle, and high school levels in Dallas ISD.  While my experience is broad within the formative education system, my teaching experience has been in the elementary classroom.  My passion for education led me to earn a Bachelor of Science in early childhood education from the University of North Texas and a Master of Arts in interdisciplinary studies from the University of Texas at Dallas.

    My determination as the leader is for our campus to collaborate, be accountable, to serve, and to continuously grow and learn together.  Our students need us now more than ever to provide stability and a healthy school/life balance.  Your partnership and input will be invaluable in this effort.  Our blended learning, parent conferences, Parent Teacher Association (PTA), Site-Based Decision Making committee (SBDM), media center, classrooms, duty, and campus projects are just a few of the ways you can volunteer to support our school.  You can also share your voice by providing input for surveys and serving on committees.  With all of our help, our students will succeed!

    As we embark on the 2020-2021 school year together I want to take steps to ensure we have opportunities to partner with one another virtually or in person. In the coming weeks, I will share decisions that come from district leaders regarding school reopening and the many ways we’ll work together to keep students and staff safe.

    I look forward to meeting each of you soon!

    Saludos Padres y Comunidad de Acton,

    Con mucho gusto les escribo esta carta presentándome como la directora entrante de la Primaria Acton. Considero un honor unirme al Distrito Escolar Independiente de Duncanville y la familia Acton. ¡Quiero extender un saludo cordial y espero trabajar junto a ustedes escribiendo historias de éxito para todos nuestros estudiantes!

    Vengo a ustedes con más de 20 años de experiencia como educadora en la primaria, niveles de secundaria y preparatoria en Dallas ISD. Aunque mi experiencia es amplia dentro del sistema educativo formativo, mi experiencia docente ha sido en los salones de primaria. Mi pasión por la educación me llevó a obtener una licenciatura en educación infantil de la Universidad del Norte de Texas y una maestría de artes en estudios interdisciplinarios de la Universidad de Texas en Dallas.

    Mi determinación como líder es que nuestro campus colabore, sea responsable, servir y crecer continuamente y aprender juntos. Nuestros alumnos nos necesitan ahora más que nunca para proporcionar estabilidad y un equilibrio saludable entre la escuela y la vida. Su colaboración y sus aportes serán invaluables en este esfuerzo. Nuestro aprendizaje combinado, conferencias para padres, Asociación de padres y maestros (PTA), comité de decisiones del plantel (SBDM), biblioteca, salones, servicios y proyectos de la escuela son solo algunas de las formas en que puede ser voluntario para apoyar a nuestra escuela. También usted puede compartir su voz al proporcionar información en encuestas y servir en comités. ¡Con toda nuestra ayuda, nuestros estudiantes tendrán éxito!

    Mientras nos embarcamos juntos en el año escolar 2020-2021, quiero tomar medidas para asegurarnos de tener oportunidades para asociarnos virtualmente o en persona. En las próximas semanas, compartiré las decisiones que provienen de los líderes del distrito con respecto a la reapertura de la escuela y las muchas formas en que trabajaremos juntos para mantener estudiantes y personal seguro.

    ¡Espero conocerlos pronto!

    Jessica Linwood, Directora

    ¡Nosotros somos simplemente los mejores!

He received his BS from East Texas State Teachers College, a masters degree from Southern Methodist University, and did additional post-graduate work at the University of Houston. Mr. Acton served as principal and superintendent of schools in Delta and Wise counties before coming to Duncanville.
