    My name is John Janezic. I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and moved to Arizona in the fall of 2000 to escape the long, cold winters. I am married to my beautiful wife Jennifer for the last 26 years. We don’t have any children but we do have pets. We have 4 cats. Bella, Chloe, Maui, and Meka as well as a 6-foot long corn snake named Willie, and a Blue Degu named Daisy. If you don't know what a Degu is, make sure to Google it.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I received my K-8 State Certification in Education from Ottawa University. I earned my Master’s Degree from Grand Canyon University in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis as a Reading Specialist. 

    My library provides a learning space that is free of judgment in which all students are supported, respected and encouraged by the whole group. With the group activities you will be involved with, there are no wrong choices, only stronger or more effective ones. As a result of this, you will see your confidence levels increase, as does your ability to solve problems and act on decisions and hone your skills in reading and public speaking.

    My Educational Philosophy

    The future of our nation depends on our ability to create-and to be creative. During the coming decades our most important national resources will be human resources. If our nation is to continue to meet the challenges of the future, today's schools need to develop creative leaders.
    My goal is to provide leadership in an education environment that will effectuate the changes necessary to ensure the successful transition of all students.
