EXCEL staff and substitute
My name is Linda Baker and I have been a part of CCS for 4 years. I worked 35 years in Corporate Business. I work in the EXCEL program at CCS and I also substitute where needed. In my past jobs, I did a lot of training and mentoring, I learned, it seemed there were three types of learning that needed to be incorporated into the classroom; visual, auditory, and hands on learning or physically doing what is being taught.
I am married to Mike Tylka. Our family is small. I have one brother, one biological son, a step son and daughter and on granddaughter. Both of my parents are deceased. I love to read, ski, walk, bake, garden, and be a mentor to my granddaughter, Maddie.
I was not brought up in a Christian family but my quest for Jesus seemed to always be on my heart, even at an early age. I searched in all the wrong places. In different religions and out in the world. Not realizing it at the time, He saved me many times. At a dark time in my life a friend took me to a Bible study. It was there I figured out God was always with me and loved me. I just needed to follow my heart and He would lead me. It was all in the Bible.
