Elizabeth Stevens Omolor
Elizabeth Stevens Omlor is a teacher, mother, artist and children’s author. Her first picture book, WALK YOUR DOG, illustrated by Neesha Hudson, will be published by Putnam in June of 2018. Advocacy for immigrant students and their families has been the heart Elizabeth’s world since before she began her career as a bilingual-certified teacher in rural northern California schools. Now as faculty of the School of Education at California State University, Chico, she works to educate pre-service teachers to meet the needs and empower English learners in public schools through the validation of home languages and cultures. She is currently serving as faculty on two university grants that train veteran teachers to provide rigorous and meaningful educational experiences for students whose first language is not English. Elizabeth was elected to sit on the School Site Council for her local bilingual elementary school as a community advocate, educator and parent.
