Overview

Corrine Beasley is a retired school teacher who has decided to make it her goal to help resolve the ongoing issue of bullying in her community.

This fictional account shows how she first helps three young students who are being bullied deal with their problems. She then becomes an advocate for other students who are being bullied. As a result of her helping these students, she is asked to speak to the students at the area schools, bringing to light the problems caused by bullies.

After she has worked with the various schools in her community, she is approached by the local chief of police, who wants her to work with juvenile and adult inmates who have gotten into trouble because of bullying.

Corrine's work with the students and adults in her community help to immensely alleviate the problem, bringing a growing awareness to everyone of how much alike people really are.

Although the story is a work of fiction, the problems addressed are very real. If a program such as this one was to be implemented in our schools, and the problem of bullying was to be addressed and eradicated, life would become much easier for a large group of our population.

Meet the Author

Working with words has been a major part of my career as I worked as a proofreader and classified advertising salesperson for several newspapers across the nation, and a temporary line editor for the Petoskey (Michigan) News Review. I hold a certificate of completion from the Parish School of Classified Advertising, where I learned copywriting for successful advertisements. I was also the editor and publisher of the school district newsletter for the Hiawatha, Kansas Unified School District 415, where I was secretary to the Superintendent of Schools for sixteen years. I spent one year at Ventura (CA) Junior College, where I majored in English. During my junior high and high school years I had poems published in the local (Camarillo Daily News) newspaper, was the historian for the Horizon Club (senior Campfire Girls) Camarillo, California chapter, and was responsible for having the monthly meeting articles published in the local newspaper. I was senior class editor of my high school year book.

My friends and family just call me K.

After retiring from my position as secretary to the superintendent of schools in Hiawatha, KS for 16 years, I am most recently retired from my post-retirement position as an administrative assistant for a geotechnical engineering and construction testing firm in Reno, Nevada. I have three grown daughters and two grandchildren. I live in St. Joseph, Missouri with my husband Walt and our Maine coon cat Lucy Marie.
