Linda is a science educator and environmentalist, photographer and visual artist. She currently teaches science to grades 6,7 and 8 at Mother Seton Academy in Baltimore. Lind is a mother of 2 sons and a grandmother of 2.
Linda’s hobbies are steeped in art and nature — she enjoys photographing nature, sports, and community events. She also create fluid art, resin crafts and candles. Linda has her own small urban garden that produces blueberries, tomatoes, herbs, greens, and provides a small space for the pollinators.
Linda’s Sacred Place is located near the school where she teaches.
The area has seen much urban blight and solid waste pollution. It is finally transforming to a habitable area thanks to the work of O’Hara Development Partners. This space is important to me because it gives the residence of the area a green space and a sense of hope that their community can rise above the challenges of urban living. My science students will be maintaining the Sacred space with regular trash pick ups and periodic plantings.
Linda’s students also intend to expand their stewardship beyond the site itself and will also be performing trash pick up along the surrounding blocks.
