About: Jana Brackman
- Role : 3rd Grade Teacher
I attended Concordia University in Nebraska and graduated with degrees in education and math. I have been teaching at Messiah since 2001. I began with a class of seven girls in second and third grade! Messiah Lutheran School has grown a lot since then, and it has been my joy to be a part of it. My husband also works in education, and we have two grown sons (both Messiah alumni) who both married teachers. Our first grandchild was born in January 2020! We also share our home with our dog Marlie.
In my free time I love to read, watch movies, play games, and travel! I love teaching third grade and watching students become more independent learners who take ownership of their own learning. Plus they still like to give me hugs! Everything at Messiah Lutheran School is based on living, loving, and learning the Gospel. It is not just a school, but a place where kids are accepted and feel comfortable being themselves.Learn About 3rd Grade
