First Grade Facilitator, Mrs. Angela Janda
Here is what she had to share with us....
Tell us about you in a nutshell:
My husband and I will be married 20 years this summer. We met as teenagers at the Jersey Shore! We have two children. Our daughter, Angelina, is 13 years old and in sixth grade. Our son, Eric, is 10 and in 3rd grade. We also have 1 black cat named Noel. I am the youngest of three children. I have one brother and one sister. I have a big Italian family and we spend a lot of time together. Sometimes our Sunday dinners can have up to 35 people!
What made you become a teacher?
I became an aunt at the age of 2, so my nephews and nieces were my first "students". My love for teaching started early! When I had to decide what I wanted to be, the decision was easy :) I picked what I loved to do...teach!
Where did you grow up?
Clifton Heights, PA
Where did you go to College?
What is your Favorite Color?
What is your Favorite Song or Movie or both?
I love to sing, but I don't have favorite song. My favorite movie is The Breakfast Club. My favorite kid movie is Inside Out.
What is your favorite book?
Too many to pick...I LOVE to read!
Do you collect anything special?
I love to travel with my family. We buy an ornament from each place we visit to help us remember the trip!
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Anywhere with a beach makes me happy, but one day I hope to bring my family to Italy. My mom was born there and I'd love to show my children and husband her hometown.
What was your favorite subject in elementary school?
Math, I love to solve problems and puzzles!

My favorite food is crab legs. I do not like mussels.
When you were a kid, was your bedroom messy or neat?
I think it was neat, but my mom would probably disagree!

I love the sweet and salty combination. Dark Chocolate covered pretzels or peanut M&Ms are two of my favorites!
What is the one thing that you always remember your Mom or Dad telling you that has stuck with you growing up?
Actions speak louder than words!
