About the Author

  As a life-long learner–educator, Annette Vance Dorey’s career has taken her to many locations –from the Southwest, to the Northeast and Canada. Interest in family history goes way back, even before getting her graduate degree in Human Development and Family Relationships at Colorado State University. As a university professor of education, she was committed to preparing future teachers. Sharing her research and the stories behind her books with audiences is a joy!

She has served as a museum director of education and volunteer in several literacy programs. In New England she has taught continuing education courses for teachers. During the past decade, Annette volunteered in Lithuania, teaching conversational English language and methodology to teachers. She inspired several hundred students and two dozen teachers of English in rural schools in Poland; taught young adult English learners in Klaipeda, LT, and is an advance TEFL instructor with adults and youth in the Czech Republic.

Organizations are invited to schedule illustrated author talks for any of her research and books, or for her teaching adventures in Eastern & Central Europe.
