Pam’s Louisiana upbringing groomed her life’s passion of writing, teaching, and enjoying good music. Combining these loves, Pam created MyLMNOP, a literacy and music program for early learners. With over two decades as an early childhood practitioner and elementary school teacher, Pam brings the eyes of a classroom teacher to each narrative she crafts, as she engages children in history, folklore, and the mysticism of her rural Louisiana culture. “My duty is great,” states Pam. “I’m a writer who teaches. I’m a teacher who writes.” Spring 2024 publication: A SEASON OF FISHIN’—A FISH-FRY TRADITION, Farrar, Straus & Giroux.
