Since 1998, Linda has worked in early childhood education, always integrating a focus on musical education and creative expression! Linda currently works and teaches throughout the North Shore area in preschools and day care centers.
During the school year, you can find her at many different schools teaching music to children ages newborn to six years old. In the summers, she sells her hand crafted jewelry made from beach glass collected along the shores of Lake Michigan. Some nights you will find her singing out with the Lake County Folk Club, or performing for seniors at any given retirement community. If you ask nicely, she will show up at your celebration and sing a song for you!
She has an extensive background in acting and really enjoys the playfulness of Wigglworms classes. Linda is all about creative process, and loves to laugh and play with her students of all ages.
When not teaching or jewelry making, Linda spends a lot of time with her family, including her three children who have all experienced Wiggleworms and are now teenagers. (One has even just started college!)
