Kate Leo has worn many hats in her lifetime: daughter, sister, friend, student, teacher, wife, parent, adult caregiver, and most recently, writer. An Iowa native, Kate has her bachelor's and master's degrees in English Secondary Education and is a certified reading specialist. Kate knows the power of reading and writing and wants to encourage her students to write for an audience beyond the teacher. Kate hopes to share short stories that mirror the experiences from many hats she's worn. Kate is the author of the blog "Write When Life Happens" on Substack.
