Hello and welcome to 1st grade!!
I am so excited to start out the year in 1st grade! My name is Jana Rangel and I will be your child’s first grade teacher this year. I hope that we can partner together to make our classroom be the best for you and your child.
I was raised in Afton, Wyoming and moved to Idaho in 1997. I attended Boise State University where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education/Early Childhood Special Education blended degree. In 2017, I received my master’s degree in Early and Special Education from Boise State University. I have three children, two sons, ages 22 and 17, and a daughter who is 12.
My entire teaching career has been with the West Ada School District at Meridian Elementary. For the past 12 years I have taught Developmental Preschool. This will be my first year teaching 1st grade. I am excited to be learning right along with students and creating memories and learning skills that will last a life time.
I have a love learning and a passion for teaching. By making our classroom a safe, fun, orderly place, my hope is that your child will have as much fun learning as I do. I feel that all children are different and require specific attention and affection for them to flourish. I will strive my best to be that for each my students.
