Meet the Author
JoAnn Flammer is a freelance writer and a retired elementary teacher. She lives in Adirondack, NY with her husband, Lee. They raised three beautiful daughters, Kathie, Sandi, & Debbie, and have been blessed with four delightful grandchildren: Brianna, Kristina, Andrew and Amber. They recently gained two step-grandchildren, Kristyn and Alex. The girls, grandchildren, and spouses (Dan & Rich) continue to reside on Long Island.
For the past twenty years, JoAnn has been writing teaching ideas and strategies for The Education Center’s Mailbox Magazines.She also published a parent page for summer reading in Frank Schaffer’s Schooldays. She recently published Giving Your Child an Edge: A Parenting Handbook filled with tips and strategies for parents who want to boost their children’s learning ability, especially in reading and writing, so they will experience academic success.
JoAnn's teaching certifications include grades N-6, English 7-12, and Reading K-12. Her passion teaching struggling readers led her to write two short chapter books for ages 8-12. The first one is about a boy who wishes his younger sister into a dragon’s cave. The second is about a princess who wants her castle saved from a greedy uncle. Both The Last Wish and Pukeweed Soup have large print and only seventy pages for The Last Wish and one hundred six for Pukeweed Soup, so frustrated readers are not overwhelmed and independent readers will delight. Reluctant readers will eagerly decode familiar words they have heard but not seen, thus building their reading vocabulary and strengthening reading skills as they share in the characters' adventurous, magical journeys to Windom.
JoAnn would love to hear from you!
