A Moment in Time – Ebony T. Holland- Day 11
Award Winning Singer to Superstar Teacher
Ebony T. Holland is known most notably in the gospel industry as 1/3 of the Grammy nominated, award-winning vocal trio Virtue. And while music is still her passion and career she is duly faceted in her passion for teaching young minds. With that in mind Ebony has just released the soon to be best-selling book Superstar Teacher: A Guide to Enhance Creativity in the Classroom! Ebony has been and educator for over 20 years and holds a Bachelor’s degree from Oakwood University (formally Oakwood College) and Master’s in Education Administration and Supervision from University of Phoenix. Ebony has now put all of that knowledge of being an educator in the classroom and equally being in front of a live audience into practical application with this amazing guide for teachers.
She says “This book has been in the works for almost 5 years…Since the pandemic and teaching school virtually, I knew we’d get back to in person school and teachers would need some help with creativity and getting back into the swing of things in the classroom,” and therefore anyone looking for that extra bit of inspiration, from those new to teaching to seasoned educators who might feel burnt out– this is a guide for you. She will be engaging in virtual book and seminar tours and live books tours once the country opens up post-Covid19.
When asked how she balances both a career in the Gospel industry and a career as a full-time teacher—The number one lesson she’s learned is that preparation is the key. “As a singer, I can’t get up on stage without rehearsal, sound checks, or vocal lessons. As a teacher, the same applies, I must find the perfect lesson, differentiate for each student, learn my student’s needs, and practice what I’ll say before I get up in front of my audience which so happens to be my students. Being prepared helps me to become more creative, organized, and engage my students with meaningful lessons, therefore making them life-long learners.”
Superstar Teacher released July 2021 is currently on her website. The digital download for Kindle and paper back is on Amazon. It will soon be in bookstores everywhere. Visit her website for more information at www.EbonyTHolland.com
