Linda Hixenbaugh is a Project ReCharge teacher at Carson High School. She teaches 9-12 grade environmental science and biology and has been teaching for 27 years. Her favorite pastimes are hiking, photography, painting, and advocating for the environment. Linda began her love for teaching in kindergarten, when helping her younger sister learn to read and she realized later in life that she felt happy when she could see a student understand a concept. If Linda won the lottery, she would spend the money on missions to help the environment.

Linda promotes sustainability by recycling, both at home and at school, and reusing plastic bottles. She also takes care to regulate the thermostat, among other environmentally friendly tasks.
