• My name is Edie Linton, and I teach kindergarten at AAO. 


    I have been teaching for twenty-plus years. In my first three years, I taught preschool at a University of Michigan Child Care Center and the rest here at the Open school. I have taught kindergarten through third grade during my time at AA Open. 


    I am a graduate of Kalamazoo College and Vanderbilt University. I enjoy reading, running, walking my dog, and spending time at the beach with family. 


    I believe kindergarten is a time for children to expand their love of learning, general knowledge, ability to get along with others, and interest in reaching out to the world. I work to create a nurturing environment to help you and your child have a successful year. While kindergarten marks an important transition, it is essential that children still get to be children.
