Middle School Humanities Teacher Has Essay Published

Middle School Humanities Teacher Ilana Long's essay "Focus, Calm, and Discipline" has been published in "Chicken Soup for the Soul the Magic of Dogs" by Simon and Schuster. The true tale chronicles a hilarious mishap at the Kelsey Creek Farm Fair: While Ilana's twin five-year-olds gape in amusement, a herd of sheep break free from their enclosure and run amok until a misfit herding dog comes to the rescue. This is Ilana's eighth essay published in recent "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books. She is also the author of  the children's book "Ziggy's Big Idea" by Lerner Publishing and a young-adult science fiction novel that is currently being reviewed by publishers.
