An educator with almost 20 years experience Michelle Person, is an elementary school principal, a former Teach For America corps member and KIPP alum. While searching for books for her youngest daughter she was disappointed at her inability to find diverse characters that her daughter could identify with, so she began writing as a way to fill that void…and Just Like Me Books was born. JLM is a multimedia production and development company that stresses the importance of literacy, culturally relevant reading material, and active learning experiences. Their mission is to promote a love of reading and increase literacy rates among high-risk readers through an interactive platform that prominently features characters of color.
