Dear Classreport users: We are one of the premiere social networking websites dating back to 2003. We are a small, family owned and operated business with less than 15 staff but freely host over a million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users: Bravos. We are funded solely through your voluntary contributions. Despite our small size we have the same costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So now we ask for your support. If everyone reading this gave $15, our fundraiser would be over in one day. If Classreport is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free for another year. Thank you. Click here to chip in now.

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Janet Simpson Jones


My family, extended family and friends are at the center of what I value. I've been blessed with a very large, loving and beautiful family...my own birth children (2), my former/deceased husband's (Harry Jones) wonderful family, 5 grandchildren, 2 great-grand children, several adult adopted siblings and their families, cousins, tribal family, cousins, nieces & nephews, and the network of extended family and friends I gained across the country as part of the DoD Community I served for 24 years. I lead a blessed life rich with many, many beautiful people in it. Many live in the Portsmouth area and I often travel back to visit during the spring or summer months. Many live all along a path I drive from Florida to New Hampshire and back each year. When I'm not traveling there, I'm in other parts of Florida, Missouri, Louisiana, Texas, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, etc. visiting other "family" or working in some way. When people ask me where I come from I tell them New Hampshire; when they ask me where my house is I tell them Florida; when they ask me where I live, I tell them "in my car." :) The "WindWalker" is my Cherokee name I was gifted with when I joined the tribe. In Cherokee my name is Tsaniti Unolei (Janet WindWalker)Jones. When I'm home in Florida, I sometimes substitute teach to supplement my small retirement income. For those of you interested in the "doing" part of my life that includes work, personal interests, volunteer work and my passions, I have included a chopped version of my biography (tried not to repeat any of the above) used for other purposes.

Life Biography:
Janet WindWalker Jones is called Grandmother by the small Texas Cherokee Tribe she belongs to; she is the Long Hair Clan Mother. After her children were grown she began traveling with her DoD work, and since retiring in 1998 has traveled almost continuously. She spent 5 years teaching in the public school system (K-9), 2 years teaching graduate courses in the Boston area and in the Boston University Prison program, 2 years in the now closed Naval Prison in Kittery, ME. and 22 years with the Air Force. During her career she taught and managed drug treatment, race relations and an array of other counseling and education programs in the USA state and federal prison systems, public schools, local communities, and college and university programs at undergraduate and graduate levels. She retired from the DoD with 24 years in Organizational Development, Program Management, Education & Training,Counseling, Affirmative Actions and Family Support Program development and management. She now works with non-profit organizations that promote cultural identity development, multiculturalism, social justice, health and wellness, indigenous youth leadership training, professional training & leadership development, spiritual ceremony, world peace initiatives and end of life preparation. She also does volunteer crisis mental health counseling. She is a social justice advocate, multicultural social justice-counseling specialist and author with a Master of Education degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of New Hampshire. She is a Nationally Certified and State Licensed Mental Health Counselor with two DoD publications on Native American issues. She co-authored the AMCD 1996 Operationalization of the Multicultural Counseling Competencies and is principal author of Chapter Six in a book about turning around the generational cycle of violence called The Faces of Violence, published in 2001. She has served in the Leadership of The American Counseling Association (ACA) and several of its divisions since 1975, and is a member of the Multicultural Multiethnic Interest Network of ACA and The National Institute for Multicultural Competence. She is a co-founder of the Native American Interest Network of AMCD and served as its Vice-President on the AMCD Governing Council for almost 10 years. She gives talks and conducts trainings and ceremony in a number of places across the country.
