Linda Webb, PhD - MMHPI - Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute

Linda Webb, PhD

Senior Vice President for Education Initiatives

Linda comes to the Meadows Institute from her role as principal of Gonzalo Garza Independence High School in Austin Independent School District. Under her leadership, the school was recognized nationally as exhibiting best practices and improving outcomes for at-risk students by the United States Department of Education. Dr. Webb brings deep content expertise in utilizing a Solution Focused Approach in education. This strength-based philosophy originated as a mental health model that has since evolved over the past 18 years to now be applicable to education work more broadly, supporting interventions with students and families by teaching positive future behaviors. Linda’s depth and breadth of knowledge in curriculum and instruction and school leadership, along with an expertise in transforming urban schools, produced a National Blue Ribbon award at Pillow Elementary where she formerly served as principal. She was also named H-E-B principal of the year for Texas.

Linda holds a bachelor’s degree in Applied Learning and Development, a master’s degree in Educational Administration and a doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas.
