About Janis

Most importantly I am a 40-something mother of two young boys, Jordan and Jean. This has made me who I am – I love being a mother! My husband, Leon-Jacques, is an ecologist.
I am also a writer. I qualified in 1989 at Rhodes University with my BA in Journalism and English and have tried my level best to steer my writing into the conservation / environmental arena. This is now particularly important as the global environmental crisis heats up and we suffer the Sixth Great Extinction.
And lastly, I am also an environmental educator. I gained my Masters in Education (Environmental) from Rhodes University in 2003. I presently work as a copywriter in the cannabis industry.
I recently completed my Level 4 Certificate in Early Childhood Development to enrich my life and to be able to teach young children.
I would love to get all these skills to gel and one way is to teach children English!
