The Instructors

Janie Harrington

Teaching Experience: I have been a private tutor in a home school environment for over a year now, working with children of differing abilities and levels.  I was a Girl Scout for 14 years, earning my Gold Award (Eagle equivalent) in High School, moving on to lead my own Brownie and Junior troops for three years.  I was also employed in an educational daycare for five years.  I have immediate experience working with children with Learning Disabilities, Cerebral Palsy, Hearing Impairment and Gifted children.  

Education: After spending three years at Penn State University in Occupational Therapy, I married and moved to Montgomery, Alabama.  I will graduate this year from Troy State University Montgomery with a Bachelors Degree in Professional Studies (Psychology and Occupational Therapy). I plan to attend graduate school for a Masters Degree in Education this spring.  I continue to research home schooling, for my love of the subject as well as the presentation of my future thesis.  

Specialties: I specialize in History and Language Arts.  I spent several years as Senior Editor/Co-Advisor of Ananda Literary Magazine, and am a Contributing Editor for Calico Trails Magazine. I currently have my first full-length novel in the works at the request of my publisher, and have a series of children's books on the table for publication next year.  I run a Fan Fiction website, and am a published and award-winning poet.
