Meet the Author

The Author
Jennifer Foreman de Grassi Williams
Jennifer was born and raised in Oakland, California, but came to Idaho in 1972 as the wife of an Air Force pilot. She began her teaching career at Mountain Home High School where she taught art for 25 years before teaching art at Skyview High School in Nampa. She earned her BFA in Art Education from Mississippi State University and her Master's Degree in Art from Boise State University. Jennifer lives in Idaho with her husband Kirk, teacher/coach/golfer, where she has been an art educator for 41 years. Jennifer has been an adjunct professor at Boise State University, George Fox University and the College of Idaho. Jennifer has received numerous state and national awards in her teaching career, including the Governor's Award in Art Education, US West Teacher of the Year, Boise State's Distinguished Alumni Award and Women Making History Award, ING's 1st Place National Unsung Heroes Award, the National Education Associations Teaching Excellence Award, Idaho's Art Teacher of the Year and was the 2002 IDAHO TEACHER OF THE YEAR. Jennifer is currently a finalist for the National Teachers Hall of Fame in Kansas. Jennifer is a published artist, having written 2 art textbooks and numerous articles. This is the first in a series of children's books she is writing, to share stories that are mostly factual, about the plethora of sentient beings that always seem to find their way into her life. Jennifer passionately advocates for all creatures. She has taken art to tiny one room school houses for over 36 years with her 'Project Van Go'. Jennifer is also a Teaching Artist for the Idaho Commission on the Arts. Her greatest work, she says, is that of mother to four amazing children: Hillary a graduate of the University of Idaho, Tyler a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Jessica (Kyle) a middle school teacher in Idaho and mother to baby Norah 'Cheeky Monkey' (the first human grandchild), and Emily (Jason) who recently completed her Masters of Counseling. In her free time, Jennifer rehabilitates wild and domesticated animals. Her greatest inspiration was her mother who passed away 2 years ago. Jennifer smiles at the journey that is her life since she was Miss San Francisco Cable Car 1968.
