Jacquie Faber is an award-winning retired elementary teacher in Marin County, California. As a teacher of 37 years, she saw how picture books impacted the lives of the children she taught. They helped them understand themselves, their world, and their own emotional issues. They inspired Jacquie to take picture book classes at the Book Passage in Corte Madera, and write her own. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators, The Storybook Academy, Judy Hedlund’s “12X12,” and The Bay Area Independent Publishing Association.
Jacquie writes picture books for children that joyfully inspire them to appreciate and value the world around them and explore their inner lives. Reading and seeing her illustrations is like going on a treasure hunt! And there’s always interesting scientific notes after the stories—backmatter.
In her own classrooms she taught “Mistakes are opportunities to learn,” and “Follow your bliss.” Jacquie has a lifetime credential in Elementary Education and taught the Gifted Writing Program for the Ross Valley School District in San Anselmo, California.
