About the Author

Anne Armstrong

Anne Hill Armstrong is a mother, middle school teacher and out-of-the-box thinker from Nashville, Tennessee. She has her master's and Educational Specialist degrees in education. Anne takes an energetic, innovative approach to teaching, and has an insatiable curiosity about other people and places. That's why her middle school students call her the Field Trip Queen. My Gnome on the Roam was inspired by Anne's summer adventures with her son, Atticus.The summer Atticus was two and a half, Anne created a self-styled toddler summer camp .When it was time for her to go back to work in the fall, she found herself daydreaming about a way to keep the adventure alive, and to connect with a community of likeminded parents and children. Now a published children's author, Anne tries to live by a phrase coined by some of her brilliant students, and borrowed with their permission: Make your life a book worth reading. She would love it if you and your child joined the My Gnome on the Roam community and vowed to do the same.
