Hello, I’m Linda Friedlin, your new Early Childhood Education Director! I am so excited to be here at the Highlands Rec District. After many years in the business world, I transitioned my career to Early Childhood Education! I went back to school 9 years ago to get all the classes, units and designations I needed and started from Teacher Assistant to Director to learn as much as I could. I am now very happy to be here at HRD continuing this journey. I live in San Mateo and enjoy being outdoors, swimming, volleyball and travel. My hobby is doing DIY activities around my home and garden.

Please introduce yourself if I haven’t met you already . I'm excited to announce some exciting changes happening at the EEC.

We are bringing on two new teachers who have a combined over 20 years experience in the ECE world. Su Wu and Sally Huang have worked with me in the past so I know they will be a welcome addition to the center.

We are also bringing on a new application, Brightwheel. It will allow our parents and family members to have access throughout the whole day to the various activities, timing of nap, meals, and curriculum information- among other things. It will make things very transparent for all, and teachers will be able to connect more easily with you each day.

A new school year is exciting, even with the changes it brings. Transitions are challenging for kiddos and grown-ups alike. Trust that the changes we are making will enhance the preschool learning experience for all our families, children, and teachers.
