Linda was introduced to the Lago Vista neighborhood back in 2012. She and her husband (Ed) found the Lago Vista residents to be passionate parents, hard workers, welcoming and the kind of people they like to be around. So they welcomed the opportunity to volunteer with Homework Help and assisted in starting the Graduation and Beyond program. Linda and Ed also served on the advisory committee. Linda’s career as a reading interventionist with Thompson School District and teacher at University of Northern Colorado in the School of Education has equipped her to help influence literacy opportunities for elementary students such as the summer reading program and UNC reading mentors.
