Originally from Alberta, Lynda has taught a variety of subjects from elementary through secondary school. Lynda moved to Tortola, British Virgin Islands where she taught grades six through twelve. Currently, Lynda lives in Vermont where she teaches at the college level. Lynda focuses on creating cross-cultural immersion experiences for her students, such as the Secondary Education Asian Experience (students teach oral English to Chinese teachers) and the Urban Education Experience (students with no experience in an urban school are immersed in a high school in the Bronx, N. Y.). Most recently Lynda has created and directed a series of public dialogue forums, Inspired Dialogue and the Personal, that bring diverse groups of people around issues of difference.
