Jane Carter began her career as an educator after completing a Master’s Degree in Special Education at the University of Oregon.  At the U of O, she received an introduction to Direct Instruction (DI) from preeminent authors and developers of DI materials, including Mary Gleason, Doug Carnine and Siegfried "Zig" Engelmann. 

Jane spent the next 10 years teaching DI programs in both elementary and middle schools in Oregon.  Specifically, her teaching expertise includes DISTAR (arithmetic reading and language), Spelling Mastery, Expressive Writing, Corrective Math, Corrective Reading and Your World of Facts.  While Jane was teaching in the classroom, she continued to work at the U of O as a supervisor and trainer in Direct Instruction in the special education licensure program. 

After a decade of teaching DI, Jane moved to administration.  In 1990 she became the Assistant Supervisor of Special Education in the Portland Public Schools.  From 1993-2004 she was the principal of Meadowview School in the Bethel School District in Eugene, Oregon.  While at Meadowview, she oversaw a schoolwide implementation of Direct Instruction in the primary grades.  From 2004-2010 she was the principal of an elementary school in the Eugene 4j School District.

Since 2011, she has served as a consultant for the National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI) as well as a university instructor and researcher.
