Linda Stirling, a fourth grade teacher at Peabody Charter School, has been elected to the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum’s board of directors.

Stirling has participated in the Spirit of Dana Point tall ship education program for the past six years and has taught hundreds of fourth graders about California’s unique maritime history.

She is a native Californian and has spent most of her entire life on the coast, with the exception of four years spent in Alaska, where she met her husband.

Stirling has two adult children, who also live and work in Santa Barbara.

She has been a member of many nonprofit boards in the area, including the Junior League of Santa Barbara, Children’s Creative Project, CASA (founding member), UCSB Alumni Association, All Saints-by-the-Sea Vestry and Peabody Charter School.

She recently received the Sustainer of the Year award from the Junior League, honoring decades of community volunteerism.

Stirling enjoys traveling, knitting, working in and cooking from her garden. She is an avid hiker and recently has been spending summers hiking in the Swiss and Italian Alps with her husband, Clark.

Dennis Schuett represents the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
