About the Author
Dr. Fairy C. Hayes-Scott, is an author of four (4) books and editor of countless more. She is a college professor of literature and composition at Mott Community College (Flint, MI) for over thirty-five years. She has also taught American Sign Language courses and lecture courses focusing on Deafness. She has initiated and taught the only college English composition course exclusively for Deaf students in the state. And reportedly, it was the only one of its kind in the country.
Dr. Hayes-Scott is a consultant and motivational speaker and blogger. She has served as a consultant for an innovative summer six-week academic enrichment program for Detroit Public Schools Deaf students, entitled “Direct Success.” On a part-time basis for Eastern Michigan University, she served as a supervisor of student teachers. And because of her excellence in teaching, based on the recommendation of students and faculty, the Board of Mott Community College has named a room after her. And her blogs have served as a metaphor of a teacher in a classroom (captain over her crew of young officer trainees), helping them hone their skills so that they will be able to take over in their various professional (naval) experiences. Most recently, Dr. Hayes-Scott has launched a different kind of blog that is in a diary format. It, too, has garnered many followers.
In addition to her professional commitment to her students, she owns a traditional/textbook publishing company and a self-publishing/marketing publishing company. Dr. Hayes-Scott has over twenty-five years of publishing experience. The varied occupations and skills of Dr. Fairy (as she is fondly referred to by many of her students and clients) have made her a well-rounded author who implements theory and practice as a college instructor and business woman.
