Meet Jennifer Militzer-Kopperl's co-author for The Roadmap to Literacy.

Janet Langley is an experienced Waldorf teacher and mentor. She walked into her first Waldorf classroom in 1986 and was instantly enamored with what she saw unfolding before her eyes: the warm environment, the enthusiastic students, a permeation of the arts, and the palpable love that existed between student and teacher. This experience led her to enroll her daughter in a Waldorf School and ultimately to become a teacher herself. (Rudolf Steiner College 1993, B.A. Waldorf Education) Janet graduated her first Waldorf class in 2001 and her second class in 2008. She has since been a school mentor, evaluator, and teacher training instructor. Currently she offers several workshops including; Teaching Literacy in Waldorf Grades 1-3 and Working with Consensus as a Spiritual Deed. Besides co-authoring The Roadmap to Literacy, Janet is co-creator of the website:, a free resource for Waldorf teachers with thousands of ideas for teaching grades K-8.

Although her work as a mentor and adult educator has been very rewarding, Janet’s greatest joys have been derived from the wonderful connections she still has with her former students. She has witnessed college graduations, marriages, held new babies, and rejoiced as these special young adults embark upon careers that are both supportive of society and personally rewarding. 

Janet likes to travel the world with Jerry, her husband of over 45 years, ski, read, play golf, swim, go for walks in the woods, and spend as much time as possible with her daughter and two grandsons.
