About Me

My name is Jana, and I am a teacher in the beautiful state of New Mexico. While I currently teach 3rd, I have also taught 2nd and 4th grades. I love all things elementary ed, but my true passion is teaching mathematics. Up until now, Facebook had always been my platform for documenting and sharing about the day-to-day happenings in my classroom, but as most teachers know, there is always so much to share! I'm a self-proclaimed teaching blog junkie, and always learn so much from the amazing teachers out there, so I figured it was time to throw my hat into the ring!

I am married to my ever-supportive husband, C.W., and have two hilarious, sweet, rambunctious boys, Tyler and Jarek. We also have a black lab named Coco.

I look forward to sharing and documenting what happens "Down the Hall in Third", so thanks for joining me for the ride!
