My Invisible Father: A Conversation with Author Jaer Armstead-Jones
Grades: K - 12

On this episode of the Classroom Matters podcast host Kristy Houle talks with author and educator Jaer Armstead-Jones.  Throughout his teaching of reading and writing, he has always had a burning desire to write books for middle school and high school teens they can relate to.  His first novel, My Invisible Father, is a story about three St. Louis teens facing the hurdles of adolescence and the impact made by their fathers’ absences.  Jaer has worked with teens in several capacities since 1993: as a youth minister, a youth facilitator at a juvenile correctional facility, and as an educator.  He is also a librarian at the St. Louis County Public Library.
