Lisa H. Aofrate Ed.D

In Honor Of Lisa who passed away December 23, 2017 and will be forever missed.

Lisa earned her doctorate in higher education and published her first children’s book about a sea turtle named Mavis within the year before passing. She also has a Masters in Early Childhood Education and a Bachelors in Elementary Education. She has taught from kindergarten to university level. She loves the awe inspiring new readers’ “aha” experiences in learning. So she has combined the early childhood ‘learning without knowing they are learning’ method with scientific facts to teach young children about this one endangered species. There may be more books on other endangered species in the future. Lisa is very concerned about our world, our environment, and our survival as a human species. She was on the board of an ecological non-profit for this very reason. She hopes that children, teachers, and parents will join in to help our fellow creatures with enthusiasm. And if not, at least learn something about them in an enjoyable way.
