TIME TO GO BACK-TO-SCHOOL DAYS
When Fall rolls around every year, I recall those back-to-school days, not only as a student but also as a teacher. Contrary to most teachers, I loved creating bulletin boards. I delighted in returning to my musty classroom and getting the books and supplies ready for the new year.
I think teachers are lucky to have two opportunities to start fresh in one year--on January 1st and when beginning a new, exciting school year.
I am not a public school teacher at this point in my life, but I still have the heart of a teacher thanks to my mother and grandmother being teachers. I love teaching, so as an author, I teach creative writing classes and present workshops on writing life stories.
|Life Storytellers Workshop|
This past weekend I returned to my hometown library in Atlanta, Illinois, to present a workshop made up of many classmates. It was a joy to share my program on life storytelling and recall memories with my friends so long ago.

LET'S CELEBRATE BACK-TO-SCHOOL DAYS!
I have discounted Girls Succeed! Stories Behind the Careers of Successful Women, an interactive eBook to inspire girls to dream big, to celebrate these Back-to-School days!
I interviewed amazing women for Girls Succeed! They shared their stories about their successful careers and how they made their dreams come true.
Working with girls and young women at a girls' summer camp in 2003-2007 gave me the opportunity to meet outstanding, talented campers and camp counselors. They made me realize the bright promise for their future was within reach if the girls pursued their passion to make their aspirations happen. The contemporary role models in Girls Succeed share stories that will inspire girls to work toward turning their childhood dreams into reality.

That's awesome that you returned to your hometown library.
It really was awesome! I got a little misty-eyed when I began my presentation, knowing I was at the library of my childhood. I remembered running up and down those wooden steps bringing books back to the library and checking them out. Now one of my books was on those library shelves. Thank you for stopping by. I truly appreciate your support!
Congratulations on the workshop. That's a topic most wouldn't cover so I can see it would be popular.
Thank you, Jacqui. We had a good turnout. It was so much fun.
What a great project. I'm also a former teacher, having just left the profession in May. In my heart I still am and always will be a teacher, though.
Congratulations on your retirement! I bet you will find ways to use those teaching skills. Yes, you'll always have the heart of a teacher. Best wishes.
It's always nice to visit your hometown. Congrats on your workshop BTW :D
