Meet the Author: Jennifer Hoh, Author of Brat Cat

Jennifer Hoh graduated from Rider University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Music.  She has been a teacher in New Jersey's Ewing Township Public Schools for seven years.  Jennifer has taught preschool, kindergarten, second grade, and is currently teaching first grade.  

In the summer of 2010,  Jennifer attended the National Writing Project's six-week intensive writing program.   This program focused on effective practices to enhance student and personal writing.  In the Fall, Jennifer was asked to present during NWP's writing conference.  Her presentation focused on teaching skills to develop student and personal writing.  

She is currently preparing to teach a conference once again for the Fall 2013.  Through these professional writing experiences, Jennifer found that she wanted to explore combining fiction for children with her unique "patchwork" artwork.  Jennifer is the latest author to release her first book through Peak City Publishing.  She hopes to enhance the reading and writing lives of young children and adults alike.
