"See Me After Class" -- A Must Buy for Teachers!

One of my friends and co-workers, Roxanna Elden, recently wrote her first book, See Me After Class: Advice for Teachers by Teachers. Roxanna is a Creative Writing teacher who has taught everywhere from Chicago to Miami and everyone from elementary school kiddies to adults. In addition to teaching and writing creatively, Roxanna is also a talented stand-up comedian, drawing upon much of her experiences in the classroom for her material.

She currently teaches at Happy High School (the name has been changed to protect both the innocent and the guilty) with me and is quite popular among the rugrats. I'm happy to see her gain recognition outside of the classroom as well!

This book is a must buy for teachers, new and veteran alike, because it has advice from actual teachers. No one knows our job better than us, so why are you going to trust the advice of someone other than a person who's actually stood behind the podium on the first day of school and felt what that kind of pressure is like?

I'm excited that Roxy is going to be having a Book Signing event at the Books & Books in Coral Gables in a couple weeks, and I can't wait to read her book. Yay, I have a friend who's famous. :-D

Roxy's book hits bookstores on June 2nd. In the meantime, you can check out her website to learn more about the book and about upcoming events in your area. I wrote a news article about her book here.
