As Chairperson of the Middle School Art Department at The Dalton School in New York City, Linda teaches studio art, papermaking, and bookbinding to Middle School students. She also teaches a High School Book Arts course that incorporates printmaking, papermaking and bookbinding. The bookbinding structures that she teaches are variations based on historical book structures from different cultures and times periods that intrigue the artist.
"I encourage a sense of discovery and playfulness with my students. Ideas flow back and forth between my teaching and my art making. Watching the students' engagement with the process feeds my desire to get to work. The teaching inspires me and comes back to me in full circle."
