The 2018-2019 school year will be Janice’s 7th year teaching at Alpine. Before coming to Alpine, Janice taught third and fourth grade at T.R. Paul Academy of Arts and Knowledge, Fort Collins. She earned her teaching degree from the Buena Vista University, Iowa, and her Masters in Counseling Psychology from The Adler School of Psychology, Chicago IL. Janice worked as a private practice counselor in Chicago for 12 years, and also with Community Art Partners, an organization created to reach out to at-risk youth. She taught classroom management classes at the University of Northern Colorado, and is an educator for the Girl’s Leadership Institute.
The culture of Janice’s classroom could best be described as one of empowerment. The students are trained to handle classroom procedures and conflicts, creating for themselves valuable organizational and leadership life-skills. She uses positive classroom management strategies to ensure that each student is supported to learn, grow, and succeed.
Janice enjoys swimming, hiking, kayaking, and creative projects of all kinds, but spending time with her children and their families surpasses all.
