Janene is passionate about making learning accessible to individuals with learning and language differences. Prior to becoming a mother to her children, Evan and Claire, she taught children with special needs in public and private school settings as an in-class support teacher, resource room teacher, and self-contained classroom teacher in grades K-8. She has worked with children with learning disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and hearing impairments. Janene also leads contemporary worship at Midland Park Christian Reformed Church every other Sunday and teaches Sunday School for children of all abilities. In her spare time, she creates adapted Bible books for her own daughter and other children with special needs so that God’s Word can be made accessible through hands-on, interactive books with simplified language. She lives in Midland Park with her husband Alan, two children, and her sweet English Cream Golden Retriever named Cooper.
