Former Seventh-Grade Educator Finds Calling in Arts and Writes about It
When a teacher discovers purpose in theater, she never thought it would change her life.
“This book is fast reading and doesn’t beat you over the head with the ‘do it or else you’ll go to hell’ attitude that I see often on TV specials, but rather, once you decide to make the changes, the paths to glory are there, step by step,”
What if you found your purpose outside the realm of the usual given professions? For Rosalie Contino, it became a dream come true, as she shares her own experiences in her book Born to Create.
In the book, Contino tells us a wonderful tale of her life as a seventh-grade teacher who later found a career in arts, having learned that it was her passion. And so, in Born to Create, she gives readers insight on her burning desire within the creative industry.
As someone who has worked as a costume designer, playwright, and lecturer, she hopes to inspire the rest of us who are considering to venture into the unknown world fueled by our passions.
“This book is fast reading and doesn’t beat you over the head with the ‘do it or else you’ll go to hell’ attitude that I see often on TV specials, but rather, once you decide to make the changes, the paths to glory are there, step by step,” says Contino.
The book was exhibited during the Frankfurt Book Fair last October 14 to 18, 2015, the Beijing Book Fair from August 26 to 30, 2015, and the Guadalajara Book Fair from November 28 to December 6.
