Mrs. Linda Behler
Mrs. Behler is happy to be a part of the St. Ignatius faculty after beginning in February, 2005 as a long-term substitute. When she came to St. Ignatius, she was returning to teaching after being a full-time mother for over 8 years. Mrs. Behler lives in the Leesport area with her family and Maggie, a seven year old Golden Retriever they adopted from the Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue.
Prior to being blessed with children, she was a vocal music teacher at
the Birdsboro Elementary Center in the Daniel Boone Area School District. She started that position WAY back in 1982 after graduating from Lebanon Valley College and left in 1996 when her daughter was born. In addition to her B.S. in music education, Mrs. Behler has taken many graduate classes in choral music and movement, Orff, Kodaly, musical theatre, technology and East Asian studies at West Chester University, Central Connecticut State University, Villanova University, East Stroudsburg University and the BCIU.
It is Mrs. Behler's hope that her excitement and love for music will inspire students to see themselves as musicians as well. She loves all kinds of music, especially "showtunes" and enjoys playing the flute in pit orchestras when given the chance. This 2014-15 school year is the first that Mrs. Behler will be teaching full-time at St. Ignatius and her responsibilities will be divided between music and computer classes. She is looking forward to the challenge!
