Pamela Proctor was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, and graduated from the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia (UBC). She taught in the Vancouver Public School System for 35 years. Although trained in traditional methods, she reshaped her teaching practice after experience and further study in England and at UBC. With like minded colleagues she started a program of team teaching and active child-centred learning at a new school called Charles Dickens Annex. After retirement she edited her father's manuscript I Was There, which was published in 2000. She now resides in Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast north west of Vancouver, British Columbia. Pam continues to write and speak out about issues in young children's education. She has toured extensively in B. C. and into Alberta to give presentations or workshops in libraries, schools and bookstores where she shares her experiences and insights with parents and teachers of young children.
