Daphne Kalmar has taught in elementary and middle schools in Massachusetts, California, and Vermont. She stocked those classrooms with seventy-five pairs of rubber boots in order to fit any configuration of children’s feet, and wearing her own boots, led many a field trip to nearby parks and creeks to explore. Daphne holds an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. She plots out her stories on long walks through the Vermont woods while her dog, Yoyo, chases squirrels and rabbits and occasionally meets a porcupine.
