A Message from Interim Principal Chabola

Dear Lin Howe Community,


I am excited and humbled to have been chosen to lead our Lin Howe community in my new role as Interim Principal. I have been part of the Lin Howe community for the last sixteen of my twenty five years as a teacher and administrative designee. I am also a proud parent of two Lin Howe alums. I can assure you that I will work tirelessly in getting up to speed in this new role, with a focus on supporting our students, teachers, and parent groups.


Over my 16 years at Lin Howe, I have taught 2nd-5th grades, in addition to serving as the administrative designee, School Site Council Coordinator, Title 1 Coordinator, grade level chair, and a member of the leadership/learning team. During my 23 years in Culver City Unified School District, I have been a member of the district’s Certificated Advisory Council, member of CCUSD’s certificated union’s negotiation team, WASC accreditation team, summer school lead teacher, member of the district’s report card committee, the district’s math adoption committee, and a master teacher for Loyola Marymount, Cal State Northridge, Pepperdine University, and Mount St. Mary’s. After getting my undergraduate degree from St. Mary’s College of California in Sports Management, I received my Master’s in Education from Loyola Marymount University in 1997 and a Master’s in Education Leadership from Concordia University of Irvine in 2014.


I believe that every student can succeed when we work together to build a strong foundation based on the fundamental qualities of communication, trust, collective responsibility, caring, and pride. Our Lin Howe community strives to be inclusive and equitable for all members of our school so that we can provide the best experience for our students.


Please know that my door is always open to you. I sincerely welcome your conversations and input during this year. I can’t wait to celebrate our collective successes during the rest of this school year.


With Viking Pride,

Casey Chabola
