Linda Poindexter


Linda Poindexter serves as the director for the Academy of Craft Training.  In 2016, Linda was recruited to serve as the school counselor.  She has 12 years of experience in school counseling. She has worked in elementary, middle, and high school settings while serving in Jefferson County Schools. Therefore, this opportunity seemed ideal for Linda to help pilot this program. However, Linda jumped at the opportunity to now serve as the director and continue to work towards recruiting employable students for the Academy of Craft Training.

Linda received her bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2004 and master’s degree in School Counseling in 2006 from Tennessee State University. In 2013, she received her Education Specialist degree in Administrative Leadership from Walden University.
