Ellen Fischer

Children's Book Author

Ellen Levey Fischer was born in St. Louis, Missouri. She graduated from Washington University with a BS in Speech and Hearing and a teaching degree for K-12. Her twenty years of teaching unfolds like a patchwork quilt. For many years she taught hearing impaired and special need children in Missouri and North Carolina. When she and her family moved to Greensboro, North Carolina she continued teaching. For several years she served as the ESL teacher for the Russian students whose families were immigrating to Greensboro. When Ellen’s not writing for children, she loves spending time with her family and especially her grandchildren.
