Linda Smith has been an enthusiastic educator since she entered the classroom in 1971. During her professional years, she has had the opportunity to teach K-6; to facilitate/teach ‘hands-on’ science workshops for teachers; to begin a homeschool program for students K-12 supporting parents and providing cooperative activities; and to teach high school art.
Her passion has been to instill curiosity and to nurture the joy of discovery. She believes strongly in the impact of thematic instruction and experiential ‘messy’ learning. For thirty years, she has created curriculums for children 6-12 based on an integrated approach. She has been recognized with a variety of awards as an educator.
Typically, she would be traveling to some fascinating destination to see natural wonders, to taste exotic foods, to meet interesting people, and to adventure beyond the known. But now is not the time. She enjoys gardening, weaving, skiing, and kayaking. She maintains 20 acres with a large flower garden in the foothills of California.
