You will enter Maria’s world where education was not a priority at home so the streets became her teacher. She became a high roller who sold drugs to NFL athletes and in the end lost it all.

About the Author:

Dr. Karen January is an educator and author with (25) years experience in the capacity of High School Guidance Counselor and Behavioral Specialist in the CPS system, ten years as an Administrative Assistant in an Alternative High School, and an adjunct Professor of Psychology at Chicago State University. Early on in her teaching career she got a crazy idea to quit and see the world. She pressed the pause button and chose a second career as a flight attendant. This afforded her the opportunity to study other cultures, learn more about human behavior, and visit places she had only dreamed of. After (14) years of traveling domestically and internationally she returned to education. During this time Dr. January implemented numerous school and community outreach programs. She collaborated with businesses, industry and social agencies to provide a network of services and resources to benefit both students and parents. The programs she initiated were a Big Brother Big Sister Peer Mentoring Program, Peer Prevention Program (drug awareness), and The Divas (Daughters Interested in Visiting a New Attitude) raising young girls to become responsible women. Her nontraditional teaching and counseling style earned her the prestigious Oppenheimer Family Foundation Award. She received a monetary grant for her programs to continue enriching the educational lives of her students. Dr. January has a B.S. in Special Education with a minor in Psychology, an M.S. Ed. In Counseling and Guidance (Community Mental Health/Education), and an Ed. D. in Educational Leadership. She has written several articles for Dunamis Magazine, published by “Dee” Collins, and is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Dr. January resides in Chicago with her family.

Review:

Book Reviews "Lessons Mama Never Taught Me" addresses some of the more pressing issues that are impacting our society today. Dr. January makes a good point that not only is it important for mothers to discuss current and relevant lessons with their daughters but it is crucial that fathers discuss them with their sons as well." Dr. James Muhammad, Atlanta. Ga., Director of Financial Literacy Clark Atlanta University "Preventive is always better than having to implement intervention strategies. Numerous steps have been provided in this book that will assist women of all ages in avoiding some of the pitfalls of life to share with other women and young girls." Diane Johnson, Chicago, Illinois, MSW C.P.S. "Eye opening. Was totally immersed in the women's stories. Found myself relating to some of the same problems and issues they have experienced. It's clear why "Lessons Mama Taught Me" was written. When we know better we can do better. Bonita Walker Chicago, Illinois, RN "Insightful, informative, revealing and liberating. Includes those lessons that must be taught. This book will empower whoever reads it." Dr. Crystal Spielman Albany New York, PsyD. "Bravo"to the women who had the courage to disclose their most personal stories. They proved that we can conquer anything once we affirm our inner strength. These women are my new sheroes." Erica Pearson, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Ph.D. "The stories are encouraging and motivating and could happen to anyone of us. How these women survived and healed from their traumas is amazing. You will certainly find out the lessons they missed while growing in mama's house. George Bennett, Indianapolis, Indiana Teacher "Clear cut in-depth lessons that should be taught from the cradle to the classroom. It is a reminder that not only must we teach but we must also model by practicing what we preach." Phillip McGraw Boston, Massachusetts, M.D. "This book covers various lessons that are needed on the journey from puberty to adulthood. Both daughters and sons as well as women and men who are still learning life's tough lessons will benefit from reading this book." Dr. Carolyn Mays
