About the Author

Educator & Entertainer!


Gloria Raven, author and illustrator of "Jackie Jamis: Jumping in the Hay!," is also an educator, entertainer, wife and mother of three.  She lives in upstate NY.  Some of the inspiration for her book came from the days when her children were young and she had a small hobby farm of her own. After her kids did their chores, fed their horse, goats, and multitude of chickens and bunnies, they were sent outside to play!    

Gloria knows that even though parents try to give their kids the very best, they still have to face a lot of day to day challenges, including bullying. This is why giving children positive role-models is so important!  Jackie Jamis is that anti-bullying role model that every kid needs!  

Not only that, but for children, schooling and learning is their life, so why not make it fun!?  

Gloria Raven's philosophy is to create environments "Where Children Learn to Love to Learn!"  

Gloria Raven is determined to have fun when she is teaching  children!  The result: they have fun learning! 

Jackie Jamis is that role model that will help your children learn and have fun...all at the same time!
