Teacher Spotlight – Janece Shelton
Say hello to Janece Shelton, a high school teacher who has worked at four Center Academy campuses, and is currently at the St. John Bluff campus. Born and raised in Michigan, Janece relocated to Florida for her job. She has taught various grades for 12 years, and also adult vocational programs for eight years.
Janece loves the philosophy of Center Academy – the ability to be able to teach according to the strengths and learning style of the students. “I love that I can individualize for each student to best meet their needs, and that I do not need to ‘teach to a test’,” she said.
Married for 26 years, Janece and her husband, Tom have two daughters: Sarah, who is 19, and Hannah, 16. Janece’s parents have been married for 61 years! She has 4 sisters, 1 brother and lots of nieces and nephews. In her free time, you will find her curled up with a book, preferably on the beach – or in the kitchen. “I’m a huge foodie,” she said.
When asked the secret to her success, Janece said, “When I put God first and my family second, everything seems to fall into place.”
