Hi, my name is Linda Schartz and I teach preschool! I was lucky enough to stay home with my kids until they started school- a choice I have never regretted, so I got started on my career a little later than most! I graduated from Missouri State University with my bachelor’s degree in 1994, and completed my certification in Early Childhood a year later, also from Missouri State.  I started as a sub and aid at Fairview for eight years before my first teaching job in Title I math. I taught math for five years, and I have been teaching preschool for the past six years!  I think I have the best job in the world!! Most people walk past my room and cringe at the thought of 20 four and five year olds together in one room, but I can’t imagine being anywhere else! I feel privileged to be the first step in a child’s education, and hope that they leave my room loving school and excited about learning!!

My husband Stacey and I have been married for 32 years!  We have 3 great kids, one son-in-law, and the newest edition is our grandson Emmett!! My family is what I enjoy most, I am crazy about them!! We spend as much time as we can together. We love to be outside, love the river, floating, and fishing.  We are notorious for being avid Patriots and Jayhawk fans!! I’m bad to binge watch Netflix, I love to cook, read, and spend way too much time on Pinterest!
