Biography / Administrative history
Teacher and author of childrens' books, Priscilla Galloway was born in Montreal, Quebec in 1930. She studied at Queen's University (B.A., 1950) and at the University of Toronto (M.A., 1959; Ph.D., 1977). Although she had dreamed of doing graduate work in journalism, she instead began her 31-year career as an English teacher at secondary public schools in Toronto (1954-56) and in North York (1956-86), while raising three children. She contributed stories, poems and articles to education journals and popular magazines in Canada, sometimes under the pseudonym Anne Peebles. In her mid-40s - finally finding the time, energy, and space for herself - she began writing short stories, published poetry, and studied for a Ph.D. (University of Toronto, 1977). Her first two works were both published in 1980: "Good Times, Bad Times, Mummy and Me" is a children's picture book; and "What's Wrong with High School English?: It's Sexist, unCanadian, Outdated" is based on her doctoral research. Galloway has also taught part-time in the graduate faculty of education at the University of Toronto and has been writer-in-residence at three libraries in northern Ontario. Her recent publications have merited numerous awards: "Truly Grim Tale"; "Atalanta, The Fastest Runner in the World"; and "Aleta and the Queen" received the Canadian Children's Book Centre "Our Choice" Award in 1996, The American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults, and a Quick Pick for Young Adults in 1996.
