Karen Bledsoe

Salem, Oregon, United States

I have published nearly books for children, primarily nonfiction for the school and library market, as well as articles in magazines such as Odyssey and Appleseeds. I teach college biology, edit a science education research journal, and I'm a curriculum coordinator on a genetics education project in one of the outreach programs on our campus. Currently I am pursuing a Ph.D. in science education.
