Short biography
Jane has written 9 books.  Seven of these are the Grammar with a Giggle series (for grades 1-12), a method she used for years in her own classroom with dramatic improvement in student writing.  The two other books -- "Blowing Away the State Writing Assessment Test" and "Teach Spelling So It Sticks"--also explain tried and true and very successful methods that Jane implemented with her own students.

In addition to writing books, Jane has given hundreds of workshops to fellow teachers around the country for the past ten years.  Her subject?  The same as she taught in her elementary or middle-school classroom for over 30 years – how to write well.  She offers 11 different workshops each on a different aspect of the subject.

In over three decades as a classroom teacher, Jane has served many years as various Department Chairpersons and Grade-level Chairperson.  She is also a past President of the Alachua County Teachers of English.  Jane has been recognized five times by “Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers.”  In 2002 Jane won Teacher of the Year for her school and Middle School Teacher of the Year for her county.  

Now Jane spends her time writing, consulting, traveling, teaching Tai Chi and Qigong, learning Chinese, enjoying time with her family and friends, and marveling at the flora and fauna of the Florida Everglades where she now resides.
