About Linda

I have over 40 years experience as an elementary classroom teacher, instructional coach and teacher trainer. My interests and my experiences are diverse. I have been a preschool director and have taught students at every grade level and in every content area from kindergarten to grade six. I am equally passionate about math, writing and reading and am highly skilled in teaching all three. I am experienced with a variety of reading and math assessments and surveys that enable me to diagnose a student's level of achievement and to identify misconceptions and learning gaps in order to directly target a student's needs.

The development of a child's ability to make accurate observations; to question critically; to problem solve; and to think creatively, analytically and independently are crucial to a child's learning. My primary goal in working with any student is to positively impact their learning in the most powerful way possible. This would include developing students who not only love to learn but who have learned how to learn and how to take responsibility for their own learning. My training and experience give me the resources and skill needed to support the learning of your child in these ways. I hope for an opportunity to do so.

I hold certification as a reading specialist in the state of New Mexico and have more than 25 years of classroom experience teaching literacy and writing. My last teaching assignment was in a K-1-2 multi-age classroom and one to three of my students placed in the top 3 in the New Mexico Reading Rainbow Writing Competition for their age level, each of the last three years I taught.

I currently hold National Board Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist, Texas Credentials in Elementary Education K-6, and New Mexico certification as a teacher leader K-8 with endorsements in reading and ESL. I have spent the last 2 years as a math specialist in the Dallas ISD supporting Academic Instructional Math Coaches.

I am available afternoons, evenings and Saturdays. I prefer to work from my home as I have many materials and resources at hand there. I will come to your home for a minimal additional charge.
