About the Author:

     Kelley King is an author, educational consultant, international speaker and certified online instructor, including 8 years spent working closely with the Gurian Institute as a master certified trainer and Associate Director. Beginning in July 2014, Kelley returned to the work she loves most - working closely with teachers and students - as Head of Lower School at San Diego Jewish Academy. Kelley now also serves as the Associate Head of School for Teaching and Learning, ECC - 12.

     In all of her roles, Kelley draws on her 30+ years of experience in education (both as a teacher and administrator at the elementary, middle and high school levels), along with her specialized knowledge of science and pedagogy, to increase the academic achievement and social-emotional well-being of all students. 

     As an award-winning school principal in Colorado, Kelley led her own staff to close the gender gap in reading and writing in just one year and has had her school’s success featured on The Today Show, in Newsweek magazine, in Educational Leadership, and on National Public Radio, among others.

     Kelley has always prided herself in mixing energy, humor, interactivity, science and common-sense and research-based practical strategies in her work with educators.

     Kelley’s third book, Writing the Playbook: A Practitioner's Guide to Creating a Boy-Friendly School, was released by Corwin Press in March 2013.
