She attended Bismarck Junior College where she met Shawn; they have been married for 37 years. Upon graduating Linda went to work for a local family-owned meat processing company as an account’s manager.

Shawn grew up in a family of educators and followed their footsteps. As well as graduating from Bismarck Junior College he went on and completed his Bachelor’s Degree from Moorhead State University. After eight years of teaching and administrative roles he continued his educational journey earning two Masters Degrees. He completed his Ph.D. in Educational Policy and Leadership studies from The Ohio State University in 1997.

They moved their family to Denver where Shawn served as High School Principal at Denver South High School, one of 10 inner city High Schools. Shawn was selected as Colorado Principal of the Year in 2001. He was the first Principal of the Year to be awarded from Denver Public Schools.

The Batterberry’s have three grown children, who all attended Primrose when they were toddlers, pre-kindergarteners and Before and After school kids.

Linda and Shawn continue to approach each day with joy as they care for and educate the kids that have been entrusted. The Batterberry’s always look forward to welcoming new kids and parents into their Primrose family.
