Mr. Jim Lindberg

This year marks Mr. Lindberg's 24th year as a teacher at Charlotte High School.  A native of Minnesota, he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in English Education from Bemidji State University in 2000.

IF YOU ARE ABSENT (EVEN FOR JUST ONE DAY), THE FIRST PLACE TO CHECK IS THE "ASSIGNMENTS CALENDAR" FOR THE APPROPRIATE CLASS, LOCATED ON THE LIST ON THE LEFT-HAND SIDE OF THIS SCREEN.

Everything we do in class will be posted on the "Assignments" calendar.  Additionally, some work will be posted to the Canvas Learning Platform.  The "Assignments" Calendar will direct you when to check Canvas.

Classroom Expectations:

 I believe in being fair.  You can expect fair treatment from me, but in return, I expect the same from you.  In my opinion, as juniors at Charlotte High School, you should already know how to conduct yourselves in the classroom.  With this in mind, my policies are simple.  They are:

  • Come to class with a great attitude, and be ready to learn.
  • Respect others. Treat them the way you would like to be treated.
  • Be on time for class and have all books and materials with you.
  • Raise your hand and wait for permission to speak.
  • Listen while others are speaking, and don’t interrupt.

 Have fun, enjoy this class, and let’s make your Junior year your best yet!
