My name is Janine Stegall. I am an international educator offering over 20 years of extensive
experience facilitating and administrating impactful, engaging, and student-centered curriculum and educational programs in the United States and Africa. My talents include strategizing future-oriented solutions for staff and student development that are consistent in creating individualized programs for all types of learning styles. I am a strategic collaborator adept in building cohesive relationships with cross-functional teams, whose goal is to advance the
learning environment and institutional mission. I am knowledgeable in a wide range of new training technologies and learning management systems.
My bachelor’s degree in Psychology from George Mason University prepared me for my next level of a Master’s in Infant and Toddler Special Education from George Washington University. I worked for several years in the special education program in Fairfax County, Virginia, USA before gaining my endorsement in Early/Primary Education from
PreKindergarten to 3rd grade from the University of Virginia. My endorsement gave me the skills to be a lead teacher in the special education full-day inclusion program. There I mentored other teachers in both the general education program and the special education program. This is where my love for mentoring teachers developed. After ten years of teaching, I pursued the National Board Certification to vet myself as an early childhood generalist and master
teacher. After this, my teaching journey took me overseas where I currently work as an international educational consultant with the certification of a principal. As a life-long learner, I am currently participating in a doctoral program focusing on transformational leadership in the area of education.
My educational philosophy defines my role as facilitator in the learning process. As the teacher, my job is to open up the world to my students by allowing them to take risks, explore the world and interact with technology. I empower other teachers to utilize instructional strategies based on the curriculum and assessment baseline data adapted to meet the needs of students. I am very mindful that we are now in a global society and collaboration is key to
developing a strong learning community. I believe in developing a strong relationship with parents, other teachers, administration, and the community.
My work in Liberia currently includes working with international and local schools on curriculum development and teacher training. I am the co-founder, with Andrea Morris, of a consultancy called Educators Providing Solutions. We work directly with schools and offer a tutoring program that serves students at a local school and in their homes. I also provide consultancy services to international organizations, like RTI International, for smaller on-site projects in Liberia.
