Hawker Brownlow Education


Jennifer Jacobson


Jennifer Jacobson, a former primary school teacher, is the author of fourteen children's books, including the award-winning Andy Shane and the Very Bossy Dolores Starbuckle, and is also a frequent presenter at library, reading, and writing conferences.

Jennifer received her bachelor's degree in early childhood education from Lesley College and her master's degree from Harvard Graduate School of Education. She currently teaches seminars on the teaching of writing. Jennifer often spends a day or two with teachers and then goes into the classroom for several days to model lessons and writing conferences. On teaching students, Jennifer says that her favorite moment is when children discover the thrill of hearing their own unique voice recorded on paper. 

Jennifer lives in an antique Cape in Maine and, when she is not writing, enjoys hiking and snowshoeing with her Jack Russell terrier.
