English teacher Linda Kraft has been at Alpha Omega Academy for more than 15 years. She holds a master’s degree in English and taught in the public school systems for 10 years before joining the staff at AOA. Her favorite part of teaching English for grades 10-12 is reading student work to gain an understanding of their views on literature, grammar, and life.
Kraft was born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She is the youngest of seven children and recalls growing up with great friends and a wonderful church family, many of whom she is still in contact with today.
In her free time, Kraft enjoys gardening, canning, making bread, scrapbooking, reading, and spending time with her children and two granddaughters. Her favorite song is Guard Your Heart by Steve Green and her favorite movies are The Sandlot and A Christmas Story.
Two things Kraft would love to do if she could are tour Israel to walk where Jesus walked and meet America’s forefathers to hear their thoughts on American principles today. Something most people don’t know about Kraft is that she used to caption movies for Disney.
