About Me

Lindsey Link serves the K20 Center as the Student Learning Designer with a focus on the instructional design of lessons, mentoring activities, and professional developments that support our cohort students. She began working for the K20 Center as an instructional designer with a focus on K-6 lesson writing after moving to Oklahoma from the state of Washington. As an advocate for students with behavioral and mood disorders, background in Elementary Education, district-level science leadership, and systematic professional development with a focus on student engagement and learning strategies have helped prepare her for the role she serves in now. She has a passion to innovate learning by building relationships with her students, creating safe spaces for special needs students with behavioral and mood disorders, as well as building alternative learning environments and seating freedoms for all kinds of learners. A Florida native and Marine Veteran, Link greatly enjoys being near the ocean and participating in outdoor and water activities that allow her and her family to connect. She also enjoys reading, watching her favorite sports teams play (Florida Gators, and the Seattle Seahawks, Mariners, and Reign), catching up with former students and families, and planning and designing new and innovative lessons that she can see implemented in the classroom.
