My 30 years in education encompass teaching, consulting, test coordinating, and administration in grades PK through College with experience in opening 3 new schools, as a teacher and leading principal. My career began with earning a BS in K-12 Art Education from Kent State University and moving directly into an opportunity to teach at a new, grades 4-8, magnet school for the visual and performing arts in 1987. Since this was a new program for the school district, I wrote the arts curriculum, founded upon DBAE (Discipline-Based Art Education) principles and served as an arts consultant for the district's K-5 elementary teachers. Due to my passion for integrating the arts into academic content areas, working with, providing professional development, and supporting teacher colleagues, I earned my MS in Teacher Supervision from the University of Akron. After 12 years in this role, I relocated to my hometown and taught art education at my alma mater for the next 5 years, encompassing all grades, K-12. During this time, I also taught Foundations of Art Education at Kent State University and was awarded National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Certification in the area of AYA Art. Upon the establishment of two successful businesses, in 2005 I decided to extend my management, leadership, and supervisory skills into serving as an educational administrator. I accepted an out-of-state position as Assistant Principal at a visual and performing arts H.S. while also serving as their Test Coordinator and University liaison which resulted in the establishment of an Educational Partnership. Outcomes of the Partnership included 6 years as summer Art Camp Coordinator for ages 7-14, writing the University's online Masters of Arts student teaching course, and consultant for their MAT Art Education program. I earned NBPTS renewal in 2009. Due to my successful experiences in both teaching and leadership, I was appointed founding Principal to open a new PK-8 visual and performing arts school which served as a feeder for the district's arts high school and local arts college programs. In the summer of 2012, I completed my Ph.D. in Leadership in Educational Administration and returned to my beloved home state of Ohio. I am currently serving as an Educational Consultant and Professional Development Trainer/Presenter. My experiences include a range of teaching, coordinating, administration, and test coordination for PK-College and I have a passion for motivating and inspiring ALL to reach their highest levels of success and achievement.
As a teacher, I have always adapted lessons to the ability levels of the learners (differentiation) so that they could experience success and achievement, develop personal expression, practice collaboration, discover avenues for innovative and creative ideas, and apply problem-solving, decision-making, and critical-thinking skills. I implemented 21st Century Skills back in the 80's, and incorporated planning, writing, reflecting, and multiple measurements for assessment which are termed formative and summative in our contemporary educational language. In the lessons I develop, outcomes and the instructional process not only feature this foundation, but focus on learning in a collaborative culture, are hands-on and student-centered, and produce results which are connected to real-life experiences and/or cross-curricular themes, and integrate with academic content and subject matter.

As long as she can remember, Dr. Lynette Angeloni played school with friends who had mothers that were teachers. Her first grade teacher and art teacher discovered her special interest, talent, and ability for art and creativity completing projects. Lynette was known throughout school as the "class artist" and was recognized and given special projects by her teachers. During her K-College years, Lynette earned awards for her dedication, leadership, scholarship, and self-driven innovative abilities. She was a cheerleader through college and is truly a "school girl". Dr. Angeloni has devoted her life and career to education, coaching, leadership, and helping others to pursue and fulfill their dreams. She believes that discovering the passions of children in their early years is the KEY to a successful and enriching life. Dr. Angeloni believes: "There is a shining star in every child and our students are the stars of today and tomorrow. We MUST do all we can as educators, parents, and a collaborative community to help them shine brighter and fly higher so that they may guide their own futures and provide the light for future generations to come."
