Grand Prairie author’s hardback novel details teacher’s inspiring journey in life, profession

GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas — Author Lita T. Cruz announces the nationwide hardback release of her inspiring new novel, “The Diary of a Teacher.”

Behind students who are confused are teachers who fail to reach out.

In “The Diary of a Teacher,” Cruz recognizes the depth and complexity of educators as guardians entrusted with children’s education and as tutors equipped with diverse degree of comprehension. She believes that it is the educator’s responsibility to reach out — not only to brilliant students, but also to apply all possible options to save slow learners from imminent failure.

In “The Diary of a Teacher,” Cruz features a woman’s struggle to life as a wife who mourns and yearns for his missing husband; as a mother who responsibly mentors her teenage children to adolescence and as a teacher who rallies for intervention among students, teachers and  parents to enhance children’s educational process.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or

Cruz, who holds a master’s degree in business administration, was a college professor on subjects of management, marketing and human behavior. In all her years of teaching, there was no history of student failure on her classes as she spent unpaid weekends to mentor those who were on the verge of failing. Cruz, who is now a senior retiree, is an author and composer with an award-winning first novel, “Starless Starr,” and a CD album that was launched nationwide.
