About the Author
Catherine McGrew Jaime was born in the Panama Canal Zone the first time her father was stationed there. In the 50+ years since, she has traveled throughout North America and much of western Europe. When she teaches, she strives to make history come alive for her students. She immerses them in each subject, including taking them on trips across the country to experience history where it happened. Some of her many trips have included following the Lewis and Clark Trail in 2005 with members of her family and volunteering at Jamestown during the 400 year anniversary in 2007. On a trip back to Panama in 2008 she started her "Horsey and Friends" series, which she has continued during recent "school trips" to Washington, D.C., Virginia, and more.
