Hello! My name is Jana Austin. I have been teaching for 11 years. I started my teaching career in the Troup County School System at Hillcrest Elementary in 2009 as a fifth grade teacher. After working in elementary school for 6 years, I worked as a faculty member in the Education Department at LaGrange College working closely with future educators. I worked as the Director of Field Experiences and taught in the Elementary Education undergraduate program. This year I am excited and honored to return to the classroom after working in higher education for 5 years. I am teaching in Exceptional Education as a Math Co-Teacher at Gardner Newman Middle School. I love teaching math, and I am looking forward to a great school year with my Mustang Family!
