Ms. Pam Flickinger transferred from Governor Thomas Johnson High School to pursue her passion of teaching mathematics at Linganore.

Flickinger grew up in Jefferson, Maryland and went to Brunswick High School. After high school, she went to Towson University and majored in math and secondary education.

Flickinger loves HGTV and was inspired to become a real estate agent when she wanted to sell her own house. She took a class to be an agent but never listed her house.  She is a Long & Foster real estate agent in Frederick County part time.

Flickinger is a sponsor of The Community Foundation of Frederick County. She has held fundraisers to provide athletic and musical scholarships in loving memory of her deceased son and daughter. She helps to decide who the fundraiser money gets allocated to and how much each student receives.

A fun fact about Flickinger is that she doesn’t like drinking coffee because she prefers to steadily rely on herself to be enthusiastic in class. Some things she does like are swing dancing and taking leftovers for lunch.

Flickinger loves Linganore for the kindness of the staff and students. When she taught at math at Governor Thomas Johnson, she took part in kickstarting “Connect,” similar to PREP at Linganore.

She loves how Linganore’s bell schedule is organized and loves to see students having the same study hall opportunity she fought for at Governor Thomas Johnson.

Flickinger teaches Algebra 1 and Statistics. She likes teaching high school students because she prefers to teach more advanced math courses. Her favorite thing to do when teaching is “hypothesis testing.”

Hypothesis testing is when a teacher conjectures about a class’s ability to excel in a particular subject, testing it, and shaping his/her teaching on what to focus on in class.

One of her Statics & Probability students Vanessa Martinez said, “I like how well she prepares us for upcoming quizzes and tests. I like her style of taking notes.”

One thing she values most in her classroom is her students feeling welcome. She wants her students to know that she understands the importance of connecting with her students and has a strong passion for teaching.

Flickinger was inspired by teachers she had growing up who were happy to be in the classroom and made everyone feel welcome. Flickinger feels that the better students feel they know a teacher, the easier it is for them to learn from him/her.

Flickinger said, “My favorite things about my classroom are the large windows. I didn’t have large windows in my classroom at Governor Thomas Johnson. Having a lot of sunlight in a classroom is important to help lift everyone’s mood. I strive to give my classroom an uplifting environment.”
