Author and Educator
When we let go of our preconceived ideas, we can begin to see the value in listening to each other.
Sharon Krasny has worked as an educator for over twenty one years in Virginia and abroad teaching in both Hungary and the Czech Republic. She discovered a love of oral history, from the people’s enthusiasm in retelling their knowledge of their history. As a literature and research English teacher, she has spent years encouraging students to take risks, look closely at the smallest details, and determine hidden meaning found within the text. Her debut novel is the award-winning Silver Finalist of IBPA Benjamin Franklin’s Best New Voice in Literature with Iceman Awakens based on Otzi, the alpine murdered mummy.
