James Linz's Biography

Greetings Cornerstone Family!  This is my third year at Cornerstone.  Coming to this school has been one of the BEST decisions I have made in my career.  I love everything about this school and am truly blessed to be here.  Prior to my time here at CCA, I had a very successful nine year run in Guilford County Schools where I taught 7th grade math, 8th grade math, and 8th grade science.  I am very excited to continue my new chapter in my life here at Cornerstone.  I have enjoyed becoming a part of the Cornerstone Family and look forward on how to continually grow as a teacher, mentor, coach, and leader at this school.

My Educational Background:  I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a bachelors degree in middle grades math and science.

My Interests/Favorite Things:  I am a big sports fan.  My favorite teams include NC State, Chicago Bears, Oakland A's, and NY Rangers.  I love golf, and play a lot.  I enjoy doing landscaping, constructing things, and all things SCIENCE!  I would rather watch a cool science documentary on Netflix than the latest movie out in the theaters.  Music is near and dear to me.  I am a huge Rush fan, and play guitar.  Last but not least, I truly enjoy teaching.  I love the classroom and wouldn't trade this job for anything!
