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.
