About the Author

Sharon Eckert has devoted her teaching career of 35 years to the education of primary students. She has taught kindergarten through third grade. However, second grade was her favorite, and she chose to teach at that level for 30 years.

During her years of service in School District 89 in Glen Ellyn, IL, Eckert has served on district curriculum committees in language arts, math, and social studies; district committtees for report cards, textbook adoptions, and teacher-in-service; and numerous building committees. Her interest in photography has led her to record various events and social functions throughout the district. Eckert earned her bachelor's degree in education and master's degree in education from Illinois State University.

Judy Leimbach received her master's degree in Instructional Strategies in Gifted Education from National-Louis University. She has 14 years of experience teaching in regular classrooms, kindergarten through fifth grade, and 14 years experience teaching gifted students in grades 1–5. In addition, she has spent 5 years supervising groups of student teachers at Wheaton College.
When she first started teaching in a gifted program, there were few materials available for gifted students in primary grades, so Leimbach began writing her own and had several books published. Having previously taught in the regular classroom, she also was very aware of the need for high quality, easy-to-use materials for regular classroom teachers to use for their gifted students in both primary and intermediate grades. She began working with other teachers, including her daughter, a middle school math teacher, to develop materials to meet that need.
