As a part of her teacher training, she was in a mentor program where she taught at an area high school. She excelled in gaining the respect of the students so much the mentor teacher began interacting differently with her. She finally asked to be reassigned.
Toward the end of her additional year of studies, she attended an educational job fair. She met a representative from one particular high school who seemed to like her. She applied to that high school.
Felecia also applied to another school but wasn’t selected. She got hired by the woman she met at the job fair. She believed God was in this.

God. During all this upheaval, she was accused of a heinous crime. It took a

the writing of this book, the outcome has not been decided. Miss Killings
