Jana Nielsen | Sixth Grade

I became a teacher because teaching makes me happy. Teaching is a wonderful job because I get to work hard, play, laugh, and spend time with curious students each day. Teaching makes me want to be a better person, and I encourage this from my students as well. The goal in my classroom is that all students are happy, comfortable, and even excited to come to school. Once a positive climate and positive attitudes are established, I find that THE SKY IS THE LIMIT for my students!

I graduated from the University of Utah with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and this will be my eleventh year teaching. I have four adult children who are all in college, and I recently became a grandma, which I love, love, love! I enjoy spending time with my children and grandbaby, riding my bike, volunteering at Hale Centre Theater, and learning about new things.

I am thrilled to be at Antelope Canyon, and I am looking forward to an AWESOME year!
