Etta Zasloff is retired from 44 years teaching and counseling in public education and continues this interest as an author of one children's book and community activism for the arts. Her book, Beginning With Xs and Os: The Evolution of the Alphabet has its origins in the Kindergarten class of her first teaching assignment, over 40 years ago, and has morphed into a retirement project that reconnects her to former students and colleagues, intrigues her own children and enchants her grandchildren.  She has taught all elementary grades plus grade 7 and was an Elementary and Middle School Counselor for 18 years in WV before relocating to RI, where she taught Middle School English and Social Studies. 

She holds a Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education and a Master Degree in School Counseling from West Virginia University, Technology Educational Leadership Certification from Salem Teikyo University, and Middle School Certification from Rhode Island College.  She also writes about a purposeful retirement, digital literacy for all ages, and life in general.  She lives in rural Rhode Island, where her children who live in Boston, can easily visit.  Etta enjoys entertaining family and friends, the arts, outdoor sports, and volunteering in the community. 

She is available through her website www.ettazasloff.com for:

  • Book Signings

  • Self Publishing Journey
