She has impacted the lives of students, educators, business owners, leaders and many audiences during her 40+ year career.Her passion for encouraging people to make choices that lead to their happiness began when she was a junior high inner city English teacher and continued to grow deeper as she worked with university students, her own private tutoring program, and with retailers and business owners.
She is a Professor Emeritus at Fullerton College and hosts the Internet radio show, Color Your Life Happy, www.BlogTalkRadio.com/florabrown , broadcasted live from Anaheim every Monday morning at 11AM PST.
Her most important job has been as a parent of four children and now grandmother of three. You’ll see that as you read the many anecdotes about her children throughout the book.
Here’s what Flora says about parenting, “Why is the most important job in the Universe left up to chance? No application, no screening, no interview. We show up at this job unprepared for what’s ahead, fumbling through with on-the-job training. Parenting is like taking a test based on watching other people take it, but never having actually studied the material yourself. And scariest of all, you may not find out how you scored until decades after the test.”
Her educational background as a USC graduate includes a BA in English with a minor in Drama, a M.S. in Education with a specialization in reading, and a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction. She has written language arts texts, academic articles, curriculum, grant proposals, and motivational guides. She maintains a number of websites, two blogs and publishes two weekly newsletters.
Her book, Color Your Life Happy, promotes making choices that give you the life you want. Here’s what one review said about the book.
“We have coached hundreds of individuals who were emotionally devastated living ‘life.’ They were far from being able to see or feel joy. Flora has put together a tremendous tool to help people experience the joy beyond the pain. Her passionate joy for life will spill over and touch many people in a profound way.” Richmond and Debbie Caldwell, speakers and authors of Changing Your Heart.
Color Your Life Happy is available on and off line from all major booksellers.
The philosophy she lives by is “Nobody becomes somebody without the help of somebody else.”
