Author Kathleen Krikorian.
I have been a middle school educational assistant for eleven years. I work with sixth, seventh, and eighth grade special needs students. I wrote my first children’s book based on diversity and tolerance as part of my Masters Degree in Education. I am licensed to teach grades one through five, and History, grades five through eight. I also have an advanced graduate certificate in Technology Integration.
I began writing when I was about twelve, but when I was a senior in high school, I was in a serious car accident. During the many months of recuperating from a broken leg, I wrote hundreds of poems. They were my escape. I have written over a thousand poems since then, and I recently recited a few at the local Literary Evening. I am currently writing my first young adult novel, a historical fiction, based in Basque Country in 1680. I am a lifelong resident of Brewster, and I am currently building my own home there. I cannot wait to move in and set up my new writing space!
