Linda Flynn rgbLinda Flynn taught for 31 years, mostly fourth grade in Mills River Elementary School from 1986 to 2007. She was very comprehensive about a subject, such as by researching the Wright Brothers’ historic flight in person at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington. She personalized history, getting a B-17 crew of World War II veterans, including her father, to talk to students. She shared values of her youth, working hard on a farm. She’d call on a struggling student to answer questions to get that youth more involved. She rewarded her class daily with “story time.”
