Former School Counselor Releases Book

Cecilia Thomas

Cecilia Thomas is a former school counselor, teacher, PTA president and published nonfiction author. In her book, You Cant Hide a Dead Fish, Thomas addresses many of the challenging issues facing public school educators. She offers positive suggestions and proven strategies for success, and shares her observations and experiences in an effort to motivate and empower people to shift to new thinking.

You Cant Hide a Dead Fish begins with a senseless, brutal murder that starkly exposes the inadequate resources and bureaucracy that puts all children and ultimately, all of society, at risk. The goal of the book is to show that the average citizen has the power to cause positive change in our public school system.

Published by First World Publishing, the book is available at Thomas currently shares a Life Coaching practice in Mechanicsville, The Main Channel, with another former school counselor.
