Meet Our Children and Youth Coordinator, Linda Bailey
Working with children since her early teen years by babysitting neighborhood kids, Linda is a graduate of U of I with her degree in Child Development and Family Relations. Her career began as a teacher and director at a church day care in New York and then Indianapolis.
Fortunate for us, she chose Champaign-Urbana as her home after retiring this past summer from working as an administrator for Army Child and Youth Services at Fort Belvoir in Virginia the past 12 years. Whether it was Korea, Germany, Italy, or in the States, Linda always found herself teaching children’s Sunday School or Bible School in the current church she was attending.
If her time is not being devoted to children or church activities, you might find her gardening, quilting, knitting, or walking her dog.
She can be reached at 217-367-8384
