After receiving her degree in Elementary Education from the University of Maine at Farmington, Janet Allison began her teaching career in a Waldorf School with a class of 10 boys and 2 girls.
She quickly realized she had NOT been prepared for the differences in the way boys learn and the way girls learn.
Through trial and error, extensive reading and research, and sheer determination, Janet was at last able to understand those parts of her boys that were hard-wired (and therefore unchangeable) and the things that she could change – by making lessons more active and interactive and providing plenty of outside time and movement in the classroom.
With her many years of classroom experience, she is able to ‘talk the talk’ with teachers in both public and private schools – including those following Waldorf and Montessori principles.
