Linda Zaldívar

Brief info

Raised in El Salvador, the daughter of a Salvadoran father and an American mother, Linda had the opportunity to live within a Hispanic community and its culture. She obtained a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of El Salvador and later dedicated herself to teaching English at the same university, at the Centro El Salvador Estados Unidos. Later she devoted herself full time to teaching contemporary history at the Cuscatleca British Academy. She moved to the United States in 2004 to continue her teaching career after completing a master’s degree in Education with an emphasis in curriculum development and instruction. Since then,

Linda has worked as a teacher in a private and a public school until she retired in 2018. For six years, she participated in a group of teachers organized by the Prince William County Department of Education in Virginia, to create a curriculum of Spanish for Spanish speakers; the goal was to create a curriculum that would be attractive to students who already spoke Spanish but did not know how to write it, or students who needed more advanced skills such as reading literature and writing essays.

Outside of school teaching Linda organized evening English classes at Good Shepherd Church; this program is still open. For several years she was secretary of the Board of Directors of the Sherbrooke Circle condominium. Linda currently owns a family child care program and is excited to be serving on the LCAM Board of Directors.

Thanks to LCAM I have been able to gain the necessary preparation to be able to offer high quality child care to the families I serve in my program. Networking with other Latinx providers has helped me a lot to exchange information, educate and support each other to continue to grow professionally.

I want to thank the LCAM family for all the help they have given me. I have been able to open my own child care business with the help of the Mentoring Program and the low-cost courses they offer I can say that I have achieved my dream, thank you LCAM for the great work you do!

LCAM is constantly announcing classes that are essential for our license renewal, other classes that improve the provider's qualifications; it also informs us of grants, business management, any changes in childcare regulations, and other topics. Most importantly this organization serves a Spanish speaking community of providers in our own language.
