Catching Up with Janet Spitler: Podcast Episode 129

Feb 28, 2018 | Posted by the IEW Blog Team




In our latest podcast, Julie Walker had the opportunity to catch up with Janet Spitler, and that’s no easy feat! Janet is IEW’s Senior Educational Consultant for the Schools Division and is devotedly dedicated to helping teachers and schools become informed and adept at incorporating IEW methodologies in their classrooms. Needless to say, she is quite a busy woman, but she loves equipping teachers to share IEW with their students.

As a highschool student, although Janet had a 4.0 GPA, she struggled to write a cohesive paragraph. In 1996 when she was homeschooling her own children, she discovered IEW. Recognizing that IEW was the missing key to her understanding how to write, she taught herself alongside her children, went to college, and became a school teacher. She took her IEW knowledge with her into the classroom, and the rest, as they say, is history!
