A teacher for more than twenty years, Connie Collins Morgan loves sharing stories with children. She grew up with a Cajun family in Lafayette Parish, Louisiana, and the nearby bayous were a rich environment for her imaginative mind. Her childhood adventures often featured epic battles with fire-breathing alligators on the banks of rivers. Her Cajun upbringing has always been a chief inspiration for her stories.
As she grew older, Morgan fell in love with writing, reading, and storytelling, leading her to pursue a career in education. She received a BA in elementary education from the University of Southwestern Louisiana and MFA in children’s literature from Hollins University. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Authors Guild.
Morgan shares her love for the classroom with others. She teaches third graders in Middletown, Maryland, a state in which she has taught for more than a decade. Morgan also has worked in schools in Louisiana and Pennsylvania. From story time to the Kindergarten Café, she fills every day with excitement and energy for her students. She makes it her mission to instill in her pupils pride for their own cultural heritage and a love for reading.
Though her family and career have uprooted her from Louisiana, she is still a Cajun at heart. Morgan and her husband live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virginia near their four grown children. She enjoys traveling to nearby Virginia, Washington, DC, and New York.
