BIO

IMG-5462.jpg

Cheryl is a retired teacher from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Most of her career was spent at Sandhills Public School as an English teacher in the primary French Immersion Program. Becoming a teacher was life-changing! Cheryl was the teacher, but her students also taught her many invaluable lessons. Like her own children, Cheryl observed the students developing friendships.These friendships weren’t always defined by race, religion, gender, or different personalities. Cheryl observed that kids were naturally sociable. For the most part, children have open hearts and make friends without judgment. It didn’t mean that their friendships always ran smoothly without ‘bumps’ along the way, but her kids didn’t use their differences as a reason not to get to know each other and form bonds. Cheryl marvelled at these admirable qualities that adults should recognize, praise, and embrace as they cherish the friends that they have and, at the same time, reach out to form new friendships.

Chouette uses a pseudonym as an illustrator. Cheryl was privileged to witness the depth of her talents. Chouette still creates many characters in her spare time. Her imagination seems limitless. Illustrating is one of her creative outlets. Chouette is a hard-working university student who has stepped aside to focus on studying languages. The pair worked together by remote conferencing to create each illustration. Chouette and Cheryl have known each other for many years but this project helped to further develop their friendship. There was much light-hearted chatter and laughter as they worked together.
