Why, hello there! I’m Anjali (Uhn-jah-lee). I am a science teacher and curriculum developer by day and children’s book author by night. At dawn and dusk, I spend my time fighting monsters, training Pokémon, and playing dress-up with my two amazing kids. I have 13 years of experience in the field of K-12 science education. My most recent learning adventure has brought me to the University of Oxford where I am researching K-8 STEM education as a M.Sc. candidate.
I stumbled into the world of writing after a cross-continent move from Toronto to San Francisco, with a 4 month-old in tow. Writing was my way of keeping in touch with the world of education, connecting with others and building a community of like-minded people. I write about current issues in education, STEM, diversity in children’s literature, and parenting.
