Jana has a deep love for classical education and enjoys helping sweet “wide eyed” students navigate through some difficult academic years. She believes the relationship between student and teacher is special because at just the right moment, the teacher can capture curiosity and help students embrace it, encourage it and understand it. Jana desires to encourage students’ love of learning as they study literature and history through a biblical worldview and work through their faith and understanding of the world.
Jana is an Austin native and began her teaching career at Anderson High School after graduating from St. Edward’s University. Over the years she has gained experience in public, private and online education. Jana and her husband, Kevin, have two children who have attended Regents School of Austin, a classical Christian school, since kindergarten (Jacob, ‘18 and Ella ’22). She has been working at Regents both in and out of the classroom for over fourteen years and has served as the 8th Grade Dean of Students, as an English teacher in 7th and 8th grade, on the curriculum development teams for reading, literature and composition and as an ever present volunteer in the years prior to joining Regents’ staff.
