Teacher Linda – Director

I have been blessed to be a part of Hosanna! Preschool for over 32 years. I taught the four day 4-5’s class for many years before accepting the position of Director. My youngest child attended Hosanna! Preschool….I received my degree in Therapeutic Recreation from Winona State University in Minnesota.  My husband and I have been married for 43 years and raised three amazing children. They have now blessed us with five grandchildren. Sparky and Maya the “dogs” completed our fun and crazy family!  Walking, boating, reading, traveling and being with family and friends makes my life Happy and Joyful!
