Amy Janecek is the district level principal with Osseo Area Schools in a diverse suburb of Minneapolis. With more than 20 years of experience, eight of which she served as a middle and high school principal, she has also served as a secondary social studies teacher, district office coordinator, and assistant principal—in diverse school settings, both urban and suburban.
Amy’s focus is to ensure students experience high quality instruction that reflects culturally responsive teaching and assessment practices so that each student can work toward proficiency. Under her guidance, she successfully led schools in culturally responsive instruction, restorative practices and proficiency based grading and assessment practices. She also expanded academic opportunities for students at Irondale, the first school in Minnesota to implement an early college program, where more than 85 percent of students take advantage of college-level courses.
She is a member of Minnesota Association for Supervision of Curriculum Development (ASCD).
Amy earned a bachelor’s degree in social studies education (grades 7–12) and psychology from St. Olaf College. She also earned a master’s degree in education (teaching and learning) and a graduate certificate in education administration, both from St. Mary’s University.
