Ann-Marie and Teresa La Gaipa

Ballerdy Book Series

Ann-Marie and Teresa LaGaipa, identical twin sisters,
were born and raised along the Jersey Shore in New
Jersey. After teaching in New Jersey for over a
decade, they moved to sunny Florida to continue their
careers in education. Ann-Marie has been teaching
elementary school for 17 years and Teresa has been
teaching for 14 years, each year educating young
children in the same district and sometimes in the
very same school!

The twins decided to combine their love of animals
and children with their love for writing and teaching.
In this heartfelt Rescue Series, Ann-Marie and
Teresa capture their young audiences by sharing their
experiences of rescuing animals in need. They hope to
inspire others to do the same.
