About Janet Moss, Ed.D
Dr. Janet G. Moss, an Associate Professor in the Teacher Education Department, joined the Rowan faculty after receiving her Ed.D. at UCLA. She earned a B.A. in Education from Northwestern University and an Ed.M. at Harvard University, then taught for nine years in suburban Chicago as an elementary and middle school teacher and coordinator of the district’s gifted program. At Rowan, Dr. Moss has served as a Professional Development School liaison, coordinator of the Collaborative Education Program, and facilitator for Elementary Clinical Practice. Her teaching and scholarly interests have always focused on fostering critical and creative thinking across the curriculum, fostering a collaborative learning environment, and supporting pre-service teachers in their journey to becoming teaching professionals. In 2011, she won the university’s Gary Hunter Excellence in Mentoring Award. Dr. Moss currently teaches sophomore through senior-level courses in the Elementary Education Program: Teaching in Learning Communities II, an introduction to teacher decision-making focusing on management and planning; Curriculum and Assessment in the Elementary Classroom, an interdisciplinary planning and assessment course; and supervision of Clinical Practice (student teaching) candidates. Her latest research, in collaboration with a computer science colleague, addresses the value of training elementary and middle school teachers to teach robotics to their students as a way of promoting critical thinking and problem solving, fostering STEM, and introducing computer science. Janet Moss is a member of the Education Advisory Council for the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati.
