Linda’s role in the College of Education is to direct and oversee elementary and early childhood field experiences, including student teaching. Her 15 years of teaching in elementary and middle school provided invaluable and formative experience, especially in developing a love for teaching literacy. Embracing the motto of “changed lives change lives”, Linda desires to train with excellence highly qualified Christian teachers who think, teach and lead biblically wherever God leads. Mrs. Murdaugh values the many collaborative school relationships fostered over the past two decades which allow CIU candidates diverse settings to serve in and to practice their teaching skills. When away from teaching, Linda enjoys time with her husband Dan and daughter Amy.
