Synopsis

Laura Bush Teacher, Librarian, and First Lady by Dina E. Forbes

With an intriguing look at the life and career of the current First Lady, this guide offers information on how to become a teacher and a librarian. As first lady of Texas and the United States, Laura Bush has been a vocal champion of literacy and education, two causes that were important to her long before she entered public life. Growing up in Midland, Texas, Bush realized at a young age that she wanted to teach. After attending Southern Methodist University, she taught for several years in Texas public schools and went on to earn her master's degree in library science. As an active participant in her husband's political campaigns, Laura overcame her shyness to become a powerful spokesperson for reading, women's rights, and education reform.
