Paul Kropp

Author's Website

Paul had a different career in mind before he became a teacher. "I started out to become a poet, but found the demand for metaphysical poets in the twentieth century to be very limited. Teaching was as close as I could come."

Paul has taught middle and high school English and special education and has classroom experience in every grade from kindergarten on. He is currently an author, editor, and  educational consultant in schools across Canada and the United States. He has published over fifty young adult books, many of which are designed to support struggling readers.

He is married to Lori Jamison Rog, with whom he collaborates on many projects. They have three sons, one daughter-in-law, one stepdaughter, and a grandson. Paul enjoys reading, fixing up his 1890 Victorian townhouse in Toronto, playing golf, creating stained glass art, playing the piano, and having discussions with the women's book club he belongs to.
