About Greg Kerstetter

Greg started teaching elementary school in 2001, after more than a decade of writing for local newspapers. Then after nearly two decades of teaching fourth and fifth grade, he left elementary school teaching to write full-time. He writes poems and essays, plus has been working to finish a middle-grade novel. You can find some of his essays and poems here and you can read his novels … some day. When he’s not writing or teaching, Greg is reading as much as he can (still trying to decide whether Moby Dick is worth his time), growing too many tomatoes in the summer, playing tennis as a late bloomer, and playing cards in the evening. Greg sometimes takes out his Smith-Corona typewriter and writes poems on-demand for people (15 minute wait), an act he reckons is part journalism, part mind reading, part finger-tapping fun.
