I play many roles…
I’m a friend: I like to reflect on life and encourage others.
I’m a writer: I’ve authored three books titled TEACH…To Change Lives,, Caregiving Elderly Parents and Teachers Touch Eternity. Teachers Touch Eternity is used by a few colleges as a reading selection for Education students. My second book for teachers, TEACH…To Change Lives is NOW available at Amazon.com. Hooray!
I’ve had a wide variety of articles published in magazines, newspapers and journals. I also write children’s picture books. This year I’ve been working on a novel best described as women’s contemporary fiction.
I’m a teacher: I have taught preschool, kindergarten, every elementary grade, and high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. Whew! I’m currently supervising student teacher interns for a university.
I’m a speaker: I’ve spoken in front of large audiences in thirty-seven states. I speak at conferences and school districts. I’ve also spoken to business groups, parent groups, leadership programs and hospital audiences. I once was the keynote speaker at a Neuro-Oncology symposium in Atlanta, Georgia and I’m not a doctor! Can you imagine?
I’m a parent: I have one daughter. She and her husband have blessed me with five terrific grandchildren who keep me laughing and carpooling. I choose to be very active in their lives. I lost my second daughter to cancer. She is also a big part of who I am.
I enjoy using humor in my speeches, my books, and also in my life. I love inspiring people with true stories from real life.
I usually post a new blog at DaunaEasley.com every Monday, unless something really inspires me or makes me laugh and I can’t wait a week. Visit my site frequently. I miss you when you’re absent.
AND if you happen to be facing the challenges of helping your aging parents (me too), I also write blog posts at CaregivingElderlyParents.com
