About the Author
Pernille Ripp is a seventh-grade English language arts teacher in Oregon, Wisconsin; and a speaker, author, blogger, and passionate advocate for education. She is a Skype Master Teacher, Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert, and recipient of the 2015 WEMTA (Wisconsin Educational Media & Technology Association) Making IT Happen Award and the 2015 ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Award for Innovation in Global Collaboration. In 2010, Pernille founded Global Read Aloud, a worldwide literacy initiative that began with a simple goal in mind: one book to connect the world by reading the same book aloud at the same time and then connecting throughout the world. From its humble beginnings, the Global Read Aloud has grown to connect more than 1.5 million students in different countries.
Pernille's research interest is in creating passionate literacy environments within the framework of U.S. education systems in order to help students fall in love with literacy again. She uses her own classroom as a laboratory and gathers ideas from the many educators she works with around the world. Pernille is the author of Passionate Learners: How to Engage and Empower Your Students, now in its second edition, and Empowered Schools, Empowered Students; both books focus on creating learning spaces and communities where students thrive and all stakeholders are empowered and passionate about learning.
