Mona Kerby Biography
I’m a professor at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland where I teach–mostly teachers–how to become school librarians, technology specialists, and writers for children and teens. I’ve been a kindergarten teacher and an elementary librarian at Little School in Arlington, Texas.
I grew up in Fort Worth, Texas but now my husband and I love living in rural Maryland. We love dogs. Here is a photo of one of our dogs who used to love stealing the trash. Now, we have a puppy, and we go to puppy school twice a week. I am not sure we’re going to pass puppy school.
The other photo was taken on a school trip to Zimbabwe.
My hobbies are reading, learning, teaching, knitting and making people laugh.
A few of my favorite things are dogs, the colors red and black, elephants, and eating ice cream.
