Hi! I am Katie Hevey. I am a wife, mom, dog mom, and a National Board Certified Special Educator from Rhode Island. I also have a BA in Journalism from the University of Rhode Island.
I have worked in many disciplines throughout my 12-year teaching career. Most recently, I have recognized the need for critical thinking and understanding around both academic and social-emotional topics.
I started writing and illustrating children's books as a way to simultaneously educate and entertain my daughter. My mission in sharing these books with others is to spark curiosity and disseminate information in a fun way that invites young readers to share in my love of learning. I also weave themes of empowerment and acceptance throughout my stories.
