Having taught school for fifty plus years, selling World Book Encyclopedias, setting up school libraries, and a special chemical library, I have catalogued a lot of books. For many years I have wanted to write a book sharing my story. Janies Unbelievable Journey: Inspirational Letters Along the Way is Janie Wilkinss true story of life as a wife, mother, and educator. She is a lifelong educator with a host of experiences and accomplishments. Growing up in rural north Louisiana, the daughter of a mail carrier, Wilkins went on to attend Louisiana Tech University and was the first student in Louisiana Techs history to graduate with certification in library science and as president of Techs first library club. Janie also graduated with a B.A. in English and social studies from Louisiana Tech University. In her career, she has touched many lives through classroom instruction in English and social studies and by setting up numerous public school libraries in Brevard County, Florida. In her free time, she continued her investment in children by becoming one of World Book Encyclopedias best sales representatives in the south. She was presented the keys to the city of Dallas for her outstanding World Book sales as a teacher representative. Active in the Methodist church, Wilkins has followed John Wesleys call to serve and has been a shepherd, participating in church missions, leading Sunday school classes and divorce recovery classes. She has also been an active citizen, working polls in local, state, and national elections. She worked hard to help Senator Hillary Clinton secure the Democratic nomination- but when that didnt happen, Wilkins worked very hard to elect President Barack Obama. Janies Unbelievable Journey is a legacy for her children and grandchildren-a piece of history recorded through photos, letters, and narrative to shine the spotlight on a successful, full life. Her proudest accomplishments by far are her three adult children: Linda, Tommy, and Eric.
