Mrs. Linda Norak

Art Teacher and PreK Assistant

Mrs. Norak earned her Bachelor of Arts in Art Education, Studio Art and Art History, at DePaul University. Linda has taught art for fourteen years, in Wilmette, Winnetka, and Highland Park. 0Linda comes to East Lake Academy from Holy Cross School, Deerfield, where she taught PreK-8 Art and a self-contained Fifth Grade class. Her two passions are teaching children and creating art! She took a break from teaching to raise her family and while enjoying staying home and raising her two sons, she volunteered in leadership positions in her children’s schools in the Lake Forest Schools. She also created, donated and sold her original art work in North Shore boutiques, as LTN Design Studio. Mrs. Norak continued her professional development and earned her Master in Special Education, including LBS1 certification for children with severe and profound disabilities, as well as special resource for students ages 5-21; Early Childhood Special Education Endorsement, birth through age five, and Early Childhood Elementary Certification at National Louis University. Linda has lived with her husband, Andrew, and their golden retriever, Annie, in Lake Forest for the last 35 years. She feels fortunate her two adult sons live nearby in Chicago. Along with teaching and art, she enjoys gardening, cooking and entertaining family and friends at home.
