Once upon a time … Teresa Joyelle Krager, aka Teresa Clark, was born in the far away land of Germany (on a US Air Force base). As a child she lived in Iowa, South Dakota, and Arizona. After graduating from Sahuaro High School in Tucson, Teresa moved to southern California. There, she received her BA from Pacific Christian College in Elementary Education along with a minor in Biblical Studies. Her teaching credential work was completed at Cal-State, Fullerton.

Teresa then moved to the Phoenix area where she received her M.Ed. from Arizona State University. She taught 27 years for the Peoria Unified School District, taking a break early on to stay home until her children reached school-age. While teaching and at home, Teresa wrote stories and songs for her kindergarten and first grade students as well as her children and grandchildren.

Since retiring, Teresa is actively pursuing her new calling. With Seuss in her head and God’s Word in her heart, Teresa has embarked upon her writing adventure, beginning with children’s picture books.
