BIO: Sandra Campbell-Notice is an educator and writer in Southern California. She is a graduateof Hunter College New York, where she earned her BA in Education, and Cal Poly University California where she earned both her MA in Education as well as an Administrative Services Credential.
Her first children’s book “My Caribbean Grandma” is to tribute to her maternal grandmother and chronicles what it’s like growing up in a rural community on the island of Jamaica. She hopes the book will be an important contribution to discussions about diversity and cultural tolerance. She currently resides in Southern California and when not spending time with her family, reads, continues to be inspired by nature, and writes children’s books.
