PERSONAL COMMENT

My love for children of all abilities reminds me of how wonderful it is to be a child and how blessed I am to be a part of their early learning experience.

I am dedicated to ensuring our cherished preschool maintains its quality & affordability for my community. 

I love Langdon and value everyone who has helped in our success. 

When you enroll at SSL preschool, you become part of our preschool family. When I spot a past student, I am thrilled to see how much they have grown and think, how wonderful it was to have been a part of that process.

PERSONAL COMMENT

The wonder and enthusiasm that children have is something I wish to capture. Seeing a child delight in questioning, discovering, and accomplishing something new is exciting to be a part of. SSLP has been a big part of my life over the years. All of my children were provided with a memory of positive growth and self-confidence that will not be soon forgotten. I would like to help provide that same experience for the other families in our community.

Linda enjoys volunteering in her time at the Langdon School in the classroom, and coaching three of the outdoor soccer teams along with her husband. She enjoys participating in baseball and other events to support community growth.
