Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jana Barrett
I spent my elementary years at Hart Elementary in Hart, TX. My junior high and high school years were spent in Hardin. I graduated from Hardin High School in 1988.
While still in high school I took evening and summer classes at Lee College. After graduating from high school, I attended Stephen F. Austin State University for 2 years. At that time, I transferred to Lamar University and graduated in 1992 with my teaching degree.
I am married to the my best friend, Chad Barrett. We have two grown sons. Our oldest son, Bryce, is a middle school math teacher in a neighboring district. Our daughter-in-love works at the local hospital. Our youngest son, Zachary, will be graduating from Stephen F. Austin University this next May and then he will pursue a Master's Degree program.
I began my teaching career in Dayton, TX at SFA Elementary, teaching 2nd grade Math and Science. I stayed there for 2 years before having the privilege of staying home with my own children for eight years. I was then asked to join the teaching staff of Hardin Elementary. This will be my sixteenth year teaching 3rd grade English Language Arts and Reading. I am looking forward to another awesome year!
