"I have had the pleasure of working with Janet Curcio Wilson for four years. In that time she and I have worked together to write a number of different arts education related grants. We both serve as Design Team members on the New Hampshire Integrated Learning Project (ILP), now called SAIL, a statewide collaborative effort to support arts integration and research on the effects of the arts on learning. I have had the pleasure of conducting a comprehensive evaluation of Janet’s arts integration model, with SERESC at the Epping Middle School and The Brentwood School in Merrimack, NH.
In each of these different roles, I have gotten to know Janet increasingly well as a colleague, a visionary educator, and an educational leader. I must say that I am impressed with Janet’s energy, her creativity, and her dedication to serving the creative and academic needs of students.
Janet is currently working at Plymouth State University where she used her talents as a curriculum development and professional development specialist. She is also the developer of the Inspired Learning Through the Arts Professional Development Model. At PSU she organized and instructed summer education institutes, conferences, courses, and workshops for teachers across the state, and supervised graduate student teachers helping them to align state standards and learning styles of students to current arts in education best practice."
