Hello, friends! My name is Janet Wells, and I am an independent sales consultant for some of the best educational supplemental publishers, offering a wide variety of literacy, math, test prep, and health and safety materials. Many of my materials are now available in English and Spanish.  I live in the Austin area, but my Texas service area extends as far west as New Mexico, and as far south as Brownsville!

I have been working in the educational field for the past 16 years. Before entering the publishing business, I served as an ESL teacher, K-1, and Gifted and Talented program teacher.  I received my bilingual and ESL certificates from Ft. Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, and later in the state of Texas. After teaching in Guam for 5 years, I returned to my home state, and taught in several school settings. I have always been intrigued by the educational publishing field, so took a leap of faith and got my feet wet first on a per diem basis, and then as an independent sales representative for the past ten years. I  am currently representing Okapi Educational Publishing, Forde-Ferrier, Rosen Classroom, Sadlier School Publishing, and Child Safety Solutions. I love getting out there and meeting my fellow educators, and hopefully will be able to meet your particular needs with my wide array of resources. My teaching experiences have certainly been an asset to this position! 

I have two very talented sons~  Chris graduated from St. Edward's University with a degree in Business Administration, and is currently living in Brooklyn, NY.  He is a cast member of STOMP and also does aerial video cinemagraphy for many events and businesses. You can see some of his work at  . Dylan attended chef school at the Culinary Institute of America and is currently working as a chef on Guam, where his father still resides. You can find his page at

 I suppose creativity runs in the blood, as my family is quite artistic! My brother Jeff built his own business from scratch, a recording studio in Houston; see and also had his own band, with members who are still actively performing. See:

My sister Jo and younger brother John are  both emerging artists...please see their pages at and . Furthermore, my sister and brother-in-law own Emerald Entertainment, an entertainment booking agency; see They also play in a well-known high-energy dance/ party band, Third Language. See

My mother sang opera, and upon request (and coaxing with a glass of wine), will sing karaoke to one of her standbys, like "The Impossible Dream", or "Ave Maria". My father played trumpet, baritone, guitar and banjo, and built several string instruments as we were growing up!!  Then there's moi, a clarinetist for Classical Rose Trio, composed of flute, clarinet, and cello.

So as you can tell, we are a highly entrepreneural family!
