Janelle is an esteemed thought partner. I appreciate her perspective and ability to communicate her ideas. She often provides the challenge I need to shift my thinking and design better solutions to complex problems of practice.

Gaynell LymanDirector of Innovative Learning Systems, Advanced Learning Partnerships

Working with Janelle, our teachers learned how to rethink their lessons with a focus on student engagement. Our teachers learned not only what makes an effective lesson, but what makes an effective teacher. If your teachers get half of what our teachers did, it's worth every penny! You won't regret it.
