Dr. Janis's scholarship is in critical mixed race studies and clinical practices in social studies teacher education. Prior to UGA, she taught social studies and served as a public school administrator for ten years. She has written about multiracialism, critical race theory, and education for social justice (i.e., Janis & Carlyle-Hollis, 2013; Janis, 2013; Janis, 2015; Janis, 2016) by using narratives to reveal the in-betweenness of her life as a multi-race woman educator living and teaching in the U.S. South. In-betweeness inspires Janis's role as Professor-in-Residence (PIR) with the Clarke County School District (CCSD). She believes schools and universities should partner to create just educational experiences for children and teachers. Thus, her current teacher education pedagogies and research are grounded in clinical practice.
