Alumna Rebecca Deurlein, knows what makes teenagers tick—and she should. After all, she’s been an educator for 20 years and during that time has had the privilege of observing thousands of teenagers. “Since parents notoriously struggle with teens, I wanted to write something that would help them understand their teens, talk to them more constructively, motivate them and help them to be successful in school,” says Dr. Deurlein, veteran English teacher, author and public speaker. Want to understand your teenager better and know how he acts when you aren’t around? Dr. Deurlein shares the inside scoop in her new book, Teenagers 101: What a Top Teacher Wishes You Knew About Helping Your Kid Succeed.
