Erin Dealey’s original career goal was Olympic Gold Medal tetherball player. When that didn’t pan out, she became a teacher, theater director, actor, mom, and author—and now welcomes any opportunity to visit schools around the world. Her Sleeping Bear Press books include K is for Kindergarten and Deck the Walls: A Wacky Christmas Carol. She lives in northern California with her husband and a very energetic Golden Retriever. You can find her online at erindealey.com and on social media as @ErinDealey.
