Hello, I am Janelle!!! I began my teaching career with a year abroad in Shanghai, China working at an American school. After a wonderful year in China, my husband and I moved to Abbotsford, British Columbia. Since moving to Canada, I have worked at a middle school in Washington (just across the border). I am a Health and Physical Education specialist with a specific passion for school wellness (check out ProjectSchoolWellness.com).
My goal as a health and physical education specialist is expose my students to the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to establish and maintain healthy habits. To help achieve this goal, I adamantly believe in developing my classroom curriculum and activities around the student and creating an intentional focus on student ownership of learning.
I am blessed to work in a school district whose number one priority is student well-being and success! This has allowed me to initiate school-wide wellness campaigns.
Master's in Wellness and Lifestyle Management, Rowan University, 2015 Bachelor's in Physical Education, Walla Walla University, 2011
When I am not teaching, I love travel, exercise, blogging, and of course family/friend time!
