My name is Linda Canteel and I started teaching at Madison in 1996. I taught Kindergarten for the first three years, and have taught 1st grade ever since. I am originally from the New York City area, and earned my teaching degree at Hofstra University. This year my husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary. We have two wonderful children, a super son-in-law, a spoiled Irish Setter, a frog, and two "grandanimals"!
