  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) May 13, 2015 - Dr. Janet Marie Selitto, Adjunct English Professor at Valencia College, Seminole State College, and ITT Technical, has been selected as an Executive of the Year Member of the Covington Who's Who Executive and Professional Registry.

    Beginning her career in education in 1988 as a substitute teacher for Orange County schools in Orlando, Florida, Dr. Janet Marie Selitto went on to become a teacher's aide. Urged to go to graduate school by the principal who hired her, Dr. Roy Brooks, she took his advice, obtained her master's degree, and landed a position in higher education as a professor. In 1997, a close friend advised her to continue her education and pursue her doctorate. Returning to Nova Southeastern University in 1998, she began working on her doctorate degree.

    Now planning and implementing lessons in college writing that includes argument styles and literature, doing technical writing like resumes, cover letters, and business plans, as well as online postings, Dr. Selitto also designs a variety of assessments that are included in the students' overall grades, advises them academically, and provides tutoring and editing services if requested. She also recently began editing colleagues' doctoral papers.

    "I have taken many professional development courses to understand the mindset of today's students," Dr. Selitto said, who spent years as a student reaching the pinnacle of her career by publishing her five-chapter dissertation in conjunction with studying for and earning her graduate-level certificate in Teachers of Other Languages (TESOL). "I continue to be involved in professional development courses and have also contributed by reviewing textbooks for Houghton Mifflin and Pearson Longman."

    Dr. Selitto aspires to get into administration as a dean or associate dean, but never wants to leave the classroom entirely. She loves teaching and working to help students meet their desired goals.

    Boasting a portfolio filled with teacher appreciation awards and certificates of professional development achievements, Dr. Selitto holds a Master's Degree in English Education and a Doctorate of Higher Education from Nova University (now Nova SouthEastern University).
