Mrs. Linda Thomson
Linda is thrilled to be joining the Shortridge family! Growing up in a bilingual household, Linda learned both English and Spanish simultaneously, and lived in Monterrey, Mexico for 3 years before moving back to the United States. She was in the first class to graduate high school through the Spanish Immersion program at Lawrence North in 2007. Linda then graduated from Ball State University with a degree in Spanish Education and a Dance minor. After graduation, she took over her former dance studio and ran it for 5 years. Linda is married to her best friend and has a 3-year-old son named Jameson, who provides the artwork displayed in her classroom. She loves coffee, pizza and sunglasses, as well as the occasional Netflix marathon! Now, Linda happily teaches Spanish 1, 2, and 3 at Shortridge as well as high school hip-hop and jazz at her local dance studio.
