    Student of CCAC Community Education class becomes published writer with first submission
    Anne Degerolamo, a middle school language arts teacher, always wanted to be a published writer, so when she saw her name in print in Pittsburgh Parent magazine this month, she was thrilled. Her article, "Things your 12-year-old needs but won't ask for," was born out of her experience spending every school day with hundreds of pre-teens for the past 10 years. She certainly knows her subject matter, but she didn't know how to go about writing for magazines.
