Stefania Shaffer traded her corporate America clients for the middle school classroom in a bold move for a second career choice.
After teaching twenty-seven hundred students, she has learned a thing or two about teachable moments. Her firm belief is that childhood is meant for learning—and sometimes those lessons have nothing to do with the classroom.
Her desire is to reach kids who feel reading is a punishment and rope them in with some characters they will surely recognize within their own circle of friends.
There are only two types of children in the classroom—those who are at the center of trouble and those who are on the sidelines watching it brew.
She writes Middle-Grade Fiction and Non-Fiction for adults. She is a veteran teacher, keynote speaker, and SF radio guest. She lives in the Bay Area with her husband.
