About the Author

Gary Covey, Author

My name is Gary Covey. I’m a native Oregonian born in Albany and a graduate of Albany Union High School. Now we call it West Albany High School. I also graduated from Oregon College of Education. Now we call it Western Oregon University.

I can’t seem to keep up with what we call things anymore!

I am now retired after a thirty-three year career in Education. I was an elementary classroom teacher, a special education teacher, a principal, a director of special education, a resource specialist, a testing specialist,  and finally a classroom teacher. That feels like a full circle to me!

And sometimes I couldn’t keep up with what I was!

But now I’m a WRITER!

And I live in Salem, Oregon, with my wife, Cameron, and our two Siamese kitties.
