Just the Tip
of the Iceberg
Dr. Linda J. Jacobs is the founder and Executive Director
of The Harbour School at Annapolis and Baltimore County. Founded in
1982 on the belief that every child can learn, she and her staff set
about the task of proving that belief true. Over and over again, Harbour
graduates are performing at levels far exceeding their peers.
Prior to founding The Harbour School, Dr. Jacobs served
as the Assistant State Superintendent of Maryland Schools
after a successful term as the Director of Special
Education Programs at Anne
Public Schools. She is a former member of the faculty
of the University of Maryland and has since served
as an adjunct faculty member at Johns Hopkins,
Towson University and Notre Dame. Five times Maryland
Governors have appointed her to state commissions and
Dr. Jacobs has presented at more
than 45 national conferences and internationally in
Australia and Hong Kong.
Not being one to rest on her laurels, Dr. Jacobs launched
The Harbour Way: Innovative Learning in the summer of 2007 to bring the
philosophy, methods and expertise developed at The Harbour School to
the broader community of parents of children who are challenged learners
and the teachers and related professionals who serve them.
The Harbour Way brings her incredible wealth of experience
and a passion for children together with the endless creativity of the
Harbour Way staff. Dr. Jacobs' energy is infectious, her methods straightforward
and her history of success: unrivaled.
