Janet Eberhardt was named CTA ESP of the Year for 2014. A member of United Educators of San Francisco (UESF), Janet works as Community Relations Specialist and Elementary Advisor where she serves as liaison between families and the school. A staunch advocate for students, Janet is dedicated to reaching out to families to affect positive change where needed and to encourage healthy interpersonal relationships for children both at home and at school.
Janet has been a tireless advocate at her school site, her local association, CTA and NEA for more than 25 years. She has worked on numerous special projects and has taken on many roles, including serving as a CTA State Council delegate, a NEA Representative Assembly delegate, UESF Executive Board member, among many others.
All of Janet's projects are student-centered, whether they be training students and parents in conflict management, recruiting adults to mentor students, creating student management programs, or working with public school kids in a collaborative student choir project. Her willingness to talk the talk and walk the walk earned her the nomination. “We are only as strong as those who walk the walk,” she said.
