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 am currently working on my second master's degree in School Counseling through Northwest Nazarene University.
My entire 14 year teaching career has been with the West Ada School District at Meridian Elementary. I taught Developmental Preschool for my first 12 years of teaching, and this will be my second 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 have 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.
