Allison Gray is the founder of Failing Forward Books and the author of I'm Just Bad At Math!

When she isn't daydreaming about or writing her next book, she is busy in her elementary school classroom teaching her students. Allison also holds a Master's degree in K-12 Administration and is deeply passionate about empowering young people to become their best selves. 


Through her everyday experiences with students, Allison sees the triumphs and struggles her kids experience. Allison's goal is to write books that children see themselves in and help each child recognize that they have the power to define their own future. 

When she isn't writing, reading, or teaching you can find Allison playing with her own two children, or jogging around the streets of Livonia, Michigan.
