Liz Cooper
 Liz grew up in Garden City New York.  She earned a BSN (nursing) degree from Catholic University in Washington DC. and worked as an OB nurse.  After switching careers and becoming an elementary school teacher, she earned an Masters in Reading Ed. degree from Towson University.   She retired from the school system as the  reading supervisor after nineteen years with the St. Mary's County Public School System in Maryland.   

 Along the way, Liz found time to open two specialty toy and childrens' book stores, invent a patented knitting needle product, and become a licensed and nationally board certified sleep (polysomography) technician. Even with all of these experiences, she has always taken the time to write. 

     Liz lives with her husband (of more than 45 years)  in Maryland on the Potomac River. 
For fun, she plays with her grandchildren, kayaks, and sews. 

 Liz believes that no matter how old you are, you should never stop learning!   
   School Visits
I love visiting schools.  I can address large groups of students or visit individual classrooms.  As a former classroom teacher, I know your time with your students is limited, and you need to make every minute count.  I strive to turn each visit into an engaging and enjoyable  learning experience with as many curriculum connections as possible.
