Kathryn P. Carter, M.Ed. also known as KP Carter, The Literacy Whisperer, has a 35-year career in education. She served children, families, and colleagues in public and private schools as the Director of Language Arts and Testing, Reading Specialist and Classroom Teacher. 

Kathryn earned her B.A. degree in Elementary Education from Johnson C. Smith University. Kathryn was awarded a fellowship to attend Kutztown State University where she earned her M.Ed. in Reading Education. 


Currently, Kathryn is an educational consultant, children’s book author, and speaker.  Her goal is to elevate, energize and encourage children to become competent, confident readers. She is the author of The Lizzie B. Hayes children’s book series about a precocious eight-year-old and three generations of her colorful family. Her historical fiction series is just right for children ages 8-12. Through her Ten Steps to Reading Success © parent workshop participants learn tools and tips to support  children be successful in school and in life. Her days are filled with tutoring, presenting author visits, and conducting parent workshops. 

Kathryn is the mother of two amazing adult sons. A native of New Jersey, she currently resides in North Carolina. Her home library is filled with mysteries, children’s books, science fiction, professional literature, and biographies. Swimming, dancing, and playing her viola help Kathryn maintain an active lifestyle. Volunteering with her church and  her sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.,  bring joy to Kathryn’s life.

My goal is to elevate, encourage, and energize children on their journey to become competent, confident readers.
