My name is Jim Linn. This is my second year as a special education teacher at George Crockett Academy. I work here three days a week. I am originally from Lansing, but moved here thirty six years ago to marry my wife. We a have two grown kids and live in Pleasant Ridge, across the freeway from the Detroit Zoo. I spent twenty four years in the military, first as an air traffic controller in the Air Force and later as a legal specialist in the Army National Guard. I started college at the University of California Berkeley, and have a B.A. in humanities from MSU, a Juris Doctor from Cooley Law School and a license to teach from Eastern Michigan University in history and emotional impairment. I have worked for Leona Group for nineteen years and have enjoyed it.
