I know Janae’  to be a reflective and intelligent leader. She advocates for students and families while striving to build community with those around her. Janae’  establishes rapport with students quickly and creates positive relationships. Many of them continue to talk about her caring qualities even after she moved on. She continually made it a priority to build relationships with students and staff.

Janae’s ability to look across gender and cultural lines, through the equity coaching model she exemplified, directly contributed to building a positive community. Her dedication to her profession and the students in our school is something that I will always remember and respect. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with someone that has the ability to be task-oriented and still be able to step back and keep the community in mind. She is a quality individual that I recommend without reservation.
