Tania Krumpak was raised in Vancouver, BC, where she completed her BA and her BEd, and began her Master’s degree in Curriculum Studies at the University of British Columbia. She began teaching English and Humanities in 2007 at a small independent school on Bowen Island, and continued her practice at Stratford Hall, a larger K-12 private school, in Vancouver. She has been a teacher, administrator, and coordinator in both schools over the past 9 years. She loves good food, good books, and is working on her first novel. She and her husband and two children relocated to Bellingham a year ago, and they live close to downtown with their puppy.
