October 2017 – Linda Reasonover
Linda Reasonover was born and raised in Jackson, Tennessee until she was 13, when her family moved to Nashville where she attended John Overton High School and David Lipscomb University. She majored in French at Lipscomb and took extra classes at Vanderbilt.
Mrs. Reasonover taught French, English, and Reading for 35 years, four years in LaGrange, GA and 31 years in Gallatin, TN at Gallatin High School.
Mrs. Reasonover has been retired for 12 years, and she and her husband moved to Murfreesboro four years ago to be closer to their son Robert, daughter-in-law Amy Cooper Reasonover and three beautiful grandchildren: Libby, Thomas, and Anna.
Linda became involved in Read To Succeed through Debbie Mankin and she has been tutoring for 2 ½ years. Linda says “I love teaching and helping others who want to learn. This is a great program, and I am proud to be a part of it. Just this past year my student, Betty Kraft, received the Student of the Year from Read To Succeed which was exciting and rewarding for both Mrs. Reasonover is so encouraging to her learners but she is a great example for us all. We are so glad that Linda Reasonover volunteers with Read To Succeed to make our community a better place for us.”
