Educator in Service is an educator (Janice Holter Kittok) serving her profession by providing in-service workshops and consulting services specific to the needs of K-12 world language education.
Welcome to Educator in Service, LLC. After nearly three decades in K-12 classrooms, I founded Educator in Service so that other teachers will find the same success and sense of fulfillment that I have found in the language education profession. My mission for Educator in Service is to empower good language teachers like yourself to become great language teachers. I believe that educators empowered with knowledge, skills and resources in a supportive environment transform good programs into great ones. Students from great programs not only develop high language proficiencies but also acquire the knowledge and habits of mind to thrive as global citizens. Educator in Service teaches you how to achieve both of these goals in your classroom. Whether you teach beginning or advanced levels, elementary or secondary students, and no matter which language you teach – you and your program can go from good to great.
Educator in Service is transforming language education by inviting educators to rethink how we teach languages and what content we teach in language courses. Brain science and education research challenge us to rethink common classroom practices and examine our beliefs about language learning. Our interconnected global era demands that students are world savvy meaning that they have knowledge of the world, understand how it works and are able to communicate with its peoples. Educator in Service workshops and consulting services give teachers the tools to achieve these goals.
I invite you to browse the workshop page to learn details about the series of training sessions that can be brought to your school district or region. If you have attended one of my conference sessions or workshops, see how your whole department or area colleagues can have the same experience. Learn how to go beyond current definitions of what’s possible to create new possibilities in your language classroom.
Send me a message that you are interested. We’ll figure out how to make it happen.

“More students motivated by success to learn new languages and study the world’s cultures will lead to more respectful and peaceful communities within the United States and throughout the world. Peace comes through understanding. World language teachers are everyday peacemakers.”
