My name is Janelle. I am an After School Director. I received a degree in Sociology with an emphasis in health and family studies from the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater in 2010. After graduations I accepted my first job at an after-school program in my community. From then on I fell in love with the job and grew in my field. I worked as an after school assistant, a summer camp specialist, a school age resource manager and a site supervisor before I got my big break as the director of the Boys and Girls Club in Madison. I later expanded my resume by returning to my roots and taking a position at a very large program in a very small town. Over the years I have continued my education by taking classes through the University of Wisconsin system and I have presented at organizational events and annual conferences in my state.
In 2018 I started That After School Life to bring together school age professionals. I established this site to be the authority resource for all things After School. We provide quality well-written articles, program plans, and tips for creating and maintain a well-rounded school age childcare program.
