Pam lives in the house in front of the big red barn and takes very good care of Maggie. She has loved horses all her life, in fact her first word was “horsey”. Writing and riding fill her days since she recently retired from teaching. Her proudest moments were helping Maggie win the Versatility Championship and being named Teacher of the Year.
And no, she doesn’t have a dragonfly on her nose.
Pamela Bond is an award-winning teacher recently retired from Fairview High School in Boulder. The Horse with the Dragonfly on her Nose is her first children’s book, however, she has numerous published magazine articles and newspaper columns.
A teacher at heart, her goal is to write children’s books for all ages that entertain and deal with life challenges we all must face. “It is never too early or too late to start learning.”
Some of the many teaching awards Bond has won include Friends of Scholastic Journalism Lifetime Achievement Award, Colorado High School Press Association Teacher of the Year, and Classroom Connections Teaching Award from Channel 7 Television. She loves sports writing and was the first female sports editor of a collegiate newspaper allowed in the all-male press boxes.
In addition to education, Bond has worked as a Newspaper Editor, Media Consultant, and Cable News Reporter. She lives on a small farm in Brighton, CO, with dog Lucy, cats Izzy and Gidget, and Maggie the Horse and her equine friends.
