Lacey Benard
Lacey Benard

Lacey Benard’s spent over a decade in the education world as an Elementary School Teacher, ELL specialist, Instructional Coach, and a Middle School Vice Principal at various schools in California.  She is now a firewife, a mom of two bitty babes, and co-founder of Bitty Bao.  Bitty Bao creates high-quality, engaging, and culturally relevant Chinese bilingual board books which include engaging pictures for the youngest of readers, 拼音(pīn yīn) for non-native speakers, and traditional characters with 注音 (zhù yīn).  As an American-Born-Chinese woman, raised without the gift of Chinese as a second language, Lacey is hoping to now prioritize language acquisition for her bitty babe through bilingual books, cultural events, and their school district’s Mandarin dual immersion program. Lacey can often be found in the middle of the night hand cutting tiny bits of paper into cute images for the Bitty Bao books and hopes that you enjoy seeing them come to life in the books as much as she does.
