My name is Janine Dean, and I have been teaching for the last nine years. I live in Douglas County with my daughter Katy, and our three furry babies...Socks, Hazel Grace, and Jackson. I worked in the corporate world for nineteen years in the retail marketing industry. I decided to leave that profession and become a teacher in 2007. My purpose in life became clear to me then and I haven't looked back! I believe that all children can learn when given the right tools and encouragement. I also believe that all children should love to read...for me it is the wellspring of life. To quote the famous author James Patterson, "There is no such thing as a kid who hates reading. There are kids who love reading and kids who are reading the wrong books."
