|Janet I. Angelis
Albany Institute for Research in Education
Know Your Schools~for NY Kids
is Associate Director of the Albany Institute for
Research in Education (AIRE) and Director of the
Your Schools~for NY Kids (NYKids) Project in
the University at Albany’s School of Education.
Her professional career has spanned the worlds of
practice and research, and she has spent the past
25 years actively working to connect the two.
A former middle school teacher, she
understands schools and classrooms and their demands. She is
also a seasoned communicator who has been responsible for
bringing this understanding to researchers and developers at a
regional educational laboratory and a university-based
research center -- and bringing research results back to
practitioners and policymakers.
Her publications bridge the
academic (through publications such as the Middle
School Journal, Journal of Nutrition Education, and Phi Delta Kappan), to policymakers (e.g., Education Week commentary), and to parents (e.g., Our Children).
