• A Message from the Principal

    Welcome Thunderbirds to Summerwind Elementary. I am Dr. Linda Brandts, principal of Summerwind Elementary.  I received my Bachelors of Arts in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Psychology from CSUB.  I have a Master's degree in Education from National University with my doctorate in Educational Administration from University of the Pacific.  I have been employed in the field of education for over 20 years.

    I have lived in the Antelope Valley almost my entire life moving here when I was 4 years old.  I am proud to be a product of the Palmdale School district having attended Yucca, Tamarisk, and Sage Middle School.  I feel very fortunate to be a Principal for the Palmdale School District.  Summerwind is a great school with students, staff, parents, and other community members who work hard to make a difference. 

    I have taught grades, K, 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.  I loved being a teacher and love being in a position where I can make a positive impact on students.  I believe that all students can learn at high levels with the support from parents working together with educators.  At Summerwind, our goal is to provide many opportunities for success with access and equity to a 21st Century education.  I look forward to working with our families, staff and community here at Summerwind, where we have the best students anywhere! 


    With Thunderbird Pride,

    Dr. Brandts
