Hello everyone! I know you came to this site for African Americans of Chattanooga, so if you clicked on this book out of curiosity…thank you very much! This was my very first educational writer-for-hire title. I was thrilled when the publisher, Rosen Classroom, commissioned me to write it. I had heard great stories about using writer-for-hire commissions to cement your portfolio, so this was a “gift” for me. The idea was to pen a manual that would prepare high school students to leave the classroom and go straight into the work world. However, as a former educator myself, I didn’t just prepare them for “fast food” work; I was determined to add content that taught how to search for jobs, how to dress, how to stand out among the competition, and how to KEEP the job they just landed.
I suppose it’s no secret that I’m proud of this accomplishment.
