Kira Holt

I spent 30+ years in education - teaching middle and high school English, college admissions, behavioral interventions, and college readiness. Now retired, I'm following my dreams to be a writer. Write what is known is a popular saying in writing classes and taking those words to heart, I'm writing to help parents and students understand what they need to do to plan for postsecondary education. Books include:
Cookbook for Getting Your Kid to College - now in Spanish too!
Coaching Your Kid to Success: Helping Tweens & Teen Score College, Career, & Life Skills
Designing a College Plan as Unique as You - coming November 2014
