About the Author
When working as a third-grade teacher in Brooksville, Florida, Kathryn Nelson founded a club just for Lefties in her classroom. Each meeting was an hour in the mornings before school each week and lasted for five years, even having an article written about them in the local paper about instilling confidence in left-handed children. They would have writing exercises with correct hand posture, dexterity circle games, artwork, music, and peer support all for the Lefties. Nelson retired from teaching in 2015 after eighteen years in the classroom and now enjoys spending time with her husband of thirty-five years, Joe, and their four children and thirteen grandchildren. She enjoys painting, antiquing, sewing, and playing the organ and piano.
