Tom Lindsey

Tom Lindsey has taught English at West High for 25 years. Teaching Composition one and two, U.S. Humanities, World Literature, Creative Writing and English nine, he has covered a range of subjects over his career. Before coming to West, Linsey taught in Oregon. What impressed him the most when he started teaching at West was the academic rigor and talent of its students. Whether that be excelling in challenging courses or the arts, Lindsey says “West High is percolating with talented students who yearn for opportunities to tap into their talents.”

Turning towards the future, Lindsey hopes to pursue his creative writing career. Though he doesn’t know exactly where he will be next fall, he’s embracing the unknown and is excited to travel and “indulge in more experiences that help feed my Muse and nurture my soul.”
