Linda Anthony

Teacher: BeforeCare & Music

I feel very fortunate to be a staff member at the Circle of Friends Preschool.  I have an Associates degree in Liberal Arts as well as a degree in Nursing.  I worked as an RN at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Kirkwood for 23 years.  I then became a part of the staff of Lafayette Christian School when our boys attended and continued teaching there for 18 years. 

My husband Rick and I have two boys, Ben and Paul.  They are both college students now.  I enjoy spending time with family, our two dogs, gardening, sewing, decorating and being outside.  I love working with families and children and watching them grow to be successful in their education journey.
