Janene has a depth of experience within education at all levels as classroom teacher, teacher of deaf, and Resource Teacher of Learning & Behaviour. Her background in Deaf Education gives her a sound understanding of the development of language. She believes that humans have naturally inquiring minds and so it makes sense that we incorporate play into our education system.

Janene is passionate about supporting teachers to develop social emotional competence in students which leads to the development of problem-solving skills, creativity, imagination, and cognitive development. Play-based learning environments evoke opportunities for this to occur as engaging with materials and their peers encourages the development of thoughts and emotions.
