Hello! I’m Jana: a mom to two and a teacher to many (although being a mom to two feels like being a mom to many because my kids are on overdrive most of the time). Join my adventure of uprooting my family and relocating to St. Louis while beginning a new position as a middle school teacher of the gifted. I’ve previously taught 7-12 gifted education, 7-12 English, and high school journalism.
Maybe you share my interests. This year I’ll be exploring my new city, and exploring new ways to engage students (personalized learning, PBL, maker spaces, STEAM, creativity, social entrepreneurship, rapport building, etc…).
