My name is Jana Schmidt, and I am so excited to be your child’s third grade math and science teacher for the year. This is my 8th year teaching, and my 4th year here at Maplebrook. I did my student teaching in Humble ISD. Following student teaching, I graduated from the University of Houston . I then took my first job at NBE in 5th grade.
I grew up in the Kingwood area, and attended Humble ISD schools. I went to Hidden Hollow Elementary, Creekwood Middle School, and Kingwood High School (K-Park wasn’t open yet). So, Humble ISD has always been like home to me.
I have been maried for 5 years to my high school sweetheart! We have one son who is in 4th grade this year! I have a cat named Cloe and a dog named Pinny, she is our hunting dog. They are my “fur” babies. I love to hunt and fish! Fall is my favorite time of the year!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions throughout the year. The best way to get ahold of me is through email, as our phones do not ring during the school day. It’s going to be a GREAT year!
