New Book Reveals Success That Reaches Beyond the Classroom
Are you the parent of a student that has always struggled in the classroom; yet you saw their gifts and talents but didn’t understand the challenge? Have teachers told you, your child would be better off with a tutor? Author Cynthia Kocialski reveals success is not based on the grades you get in school in her latest book, “Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success.”
Everyone is aware when it comes to grade school, success for students is measured on their report card by getting all A’s. Does that necessarily mean the child is successful or is the message that the student memorized well enough to pass the test? Did they truly retain the information? Author Kocialski states “In the working world, success is far more complex.”
“Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success” provides wisdom on achieving professional glory that will serve as an invaluable resource to anyone who is thinking about their career or even for parents seeking to help their children lay the groundwork for success in the workplace and life. This book helps students to realize they don’t have to be at the top of their class to make informed decisions, pursue their dreams and to overcome obstacles that get in their way.
Author Kocialski delivers eighteen concise chapters that take students and parents on the journey into the educational system. It reveals what parents and students are led to believe from discussing grades which usually means getting A+, to the common saying practice makes perfect, to one big success secret and ending with I’d rather be. “Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success” may bring comfort to some and make others uneasy because Author Kocialski shares from her role as a parent who was “never good enough for the local school system.” She discovered through this trial and as a business owner, success in life doesn’t hinge upon getting the top grades.
Readers of “Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success” will learn how the average student can be highly successful; whether or not common beliefs you learn in school have a negative impact on your later success and how does the game change once they hand you a diploma? On page after page, readers will discover an insightful roadmap to success which will give them a hot of “aha!” moments that will forever change their view of the world ahead of them.
Out of the Classroom Lessons in Success is available through Amazon and on Kindle. If you are interested in interviewing Author Kocialski regarding the education system and parenting, she can be reached through her publisher Yvonne Wu at The YP Publishing.
