Hello Colleagues, my name is Seletha Tucker. I live in Memphis, Tennessee with my husband of 24 years. We have  two great kids, Andrea and AJ.  Before becoming an educator, I worked as a medical transcriptionist for over 20 years. I was very good at this but it was fulfilling. After deciding to return to school and to pursue becoming a teacher, my life has not been the same.  I have returned to my first love, teaching, and enjoy teaching middle school students.

I also love to writing and am looking forward to adding to my children's books.  I have already published two children's books entitled, A Hat For Melinda, Fighting Leukemia Together and Stephen's Presentation, Learning About Sickle Cell.

I have been very  busy this summer.  Besides returning by to school, I was a part of recording a live CD with a mass choir. It was a lot of work but the it was worth it overall.  I also took a trip with a friend of mine to Birmingham.  We had a very relaxing time and after which we headed to the mall for a spa treatment and shopping.

In my spare time, I love shopping for me and anyone else who would allow me to help them choose clothes that compliment their bodies.


  1. Seletha,
    Good picture and short bio: don't forget questions for your readers!

  2. Seletha,

    Very nice bio! I am very interested in your authorship of the children's books. Congratulations on your publications! I supposed your history as a medical transcriptionist is why you chose the topics of leukemia and sickle cell? Have you used these books in an academic setting, for example with your students? What was the inspiration for writing them, and what role do you see your writing taking in your educational career?

    P.S. my husband and I were part of a gospel group that also recorded a CD in 2006, and you are right, it was a lot of work, but worth it!

  3. Thanks G. Bryant, you are correct, the job as a medical transcriptionist did give me the information I needed to begin writing. God gave me in the idea in a dream one night and I went from there. My love for children and my passion to seem them do well in life was the inspiration. I have read my books in schools and also have given them out to several students. These books are also at our libraries in Memphis. I look forward to hearing more about your gospel CD.
