A fourth-grade teacher in the Mustang Public Schools, a suburb of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, author Gaye Sanders makes it a point to share the historic story of the Oklahoma City bombing with her students every year.
She began her teaching career in Houston, Texas, before moving to central Oklahoma in 1985. She taught more than five years in the Putnam City Public Schools before joining the Mustang Public School District in 1991. She likes to say that she teaches her students to love reading and writing as much as she does, to be proficient in math for life, and to be a success in whatever they choose to do with their lives. But most importantly, she teaches them to love each other as much as possible.
Gaye is the Assistant Regional Advisor for Oklahoma SCBWI. She is also a member of the National Education Association and the Oklahoma Education Association.
The Survivor Tree is her first book.
The mother of two grown sons, the author makes her home in Yukon, Oklahoma.
