• Janet Wilkerson
     
    My name is Janet Wilkerson.  I have taught in the Redwood School District since 1987.  After teaching my first 3 years at First Grade at Clifford School, I moved to Room 1 and have been teaching Kindergarten ever since!  I am married to my wonderful husband Shawn, a Fire Captain with the San Carlos Fire Department.  We have four beautiful children, Luke, Jake and twins, Hank and Abbey.  All four of my children attended Clifford School, Kindergarten through 8th Grade. They loved their time here, and I would not have placed them anywhere else!

    In my free time I love spending time with my family and traveling together. We are road trip people, always up for exploring new areas and discovering uncharted territory!  My children show me the depths of my strengths, as well as my shortcomings, which I find both challenging and motivating at the same time.  I believe there is no more important job on earth than raising a child.  It is a blessing beyond words, and a responsibility beyond measure. 
     
    I love to hike, spend time at the beach, throw a great party and work around my house.  I can spend hours lost in a good home store, and love to cook for others. I also love teaching Kindergarten! A Kindergartener's enthusiasm for learning is contagious!  They are wide-eyed and full of wonder!  They are accepting and honest and joy-filled.  They are appreciative of the little things, and see the world for the amazing place it is.  I have the privilege of teaching at the best school in the district, with the most talented, caring and gifted staff.  Being a part of this Clifford family is an honor.
