From Chicken Soup for the Soul Presents Teens Talkin' Faith


When it comes to teenagers, no one knows them or loves them like Mrs. T! As a health and alternative education teacher, youth group leader, and inspirational speaker, Michelle shares her enthusiasm, faith, and energy with young people as she challenges them to make healthy choices. She is a rare commodity as an expert in the field of teens, teen-parent communication, and teen decision-making because her talents extend beyond research expertise and touch the hearts of teenagers, their parents, and their teachers on a daily basis.

Michelle’s experience is vast. A former Teacher of the Year and a four-time selection to Who’s Who Among American Teachers, Michelle has appeared on television (including Oprah) and radio across the nation as a guest expert on teenagers. She has designed site-based peer education curricula and facilitated Student Assistance Programs. In addition, Michelle is the founder of an Alternative Education Program called F.O.C.U.S. The acronym represents Found Our Chance to Unlock Success, and the program exemplifies Michelle’s ambition to guide teens to make choices based on faith and character.

Michelle’s first book, Why Can’t We Talk? What Teens Would Share if Parents Would Listen, was an Editor’s Choice selection in Teen People Magazine and has appealed to both teens and their parents.
