About the Author


Carly Furino currently lives on the Upper East Side in New York City and is entering her ninth year as an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Penn State University and her Master’s Degree in Childhood Special Education from Queen’s College. Working with children has always been a lifelong dream of Carly’s.

She thrives on teaching children to embrace their special gifts with enthusiasm and acceptance. She is excited to continue her educational journey of guiding children to become confident and creative learners. She believes that stories can change the world and she uses that conviction to inspire and empower young children to learn how to read and write.

When she is not writing or teaching, Carly enjoys traveling with her family, indulging in New York’s variety of restaurants, and relaxing at the beach to the sound of the ocean waves. Carly is ecstatic to embark on her new adventure of becoming an author and looks forward to many more children’s publications!
