About the Author
A little about Karen:
"I was born and raised in Texas, and ever since I can remember, I've always wanted to be a teacher. Because I also loved to read and write stories, it seemed logical to combine these interests and become an English teacher.
After graduating from High School, I attended the University of North Texas and majored in, you guessed it, secondary education. My chosen teaching fields were English and art. Later, I changed my teaching fields to art and mathematics. People said, "Those don't go together." I knew they did, at least inside me, but eventually I switched teaching fields again, to a more logical combination, business and math. I graduated with honors, and searched for a job as a high school business teacher. No luck. So, I accepted a position as a middle school mathematics teacher in a rural school district. Twenty-nine years later, I retired from the same school district.
While teaching, I married John, had a son, Ian, and earned a Master's Degree in Secondary Education, with a minor in Computer Science. After eleven years at the middle school, I moved on to spend ten years in the Instructional Technology department. During that time, I rediscovered my love of writing.
When I returned to the classroom, this time as a high school geometry teacher, I brought my writing with me. People said, "Math and writing? Those don't go together." But this time, I didn't listen to the "people", because inside me, those things did go together. After years of balancing family, teaching, and honing my writing skills, I had three books come out within two months of each other, all dealing in some way with math. I now have twenty books to my credit including “Math It Up” with Pieces of Learning.
Math and writing? Hmmm. Maybe they do go together.
