Teacher Feature- Janna Schaefer


Janna Schaefer
Kindergarten Teacher 
Floyds Knobs Elementary School

Janna Schaefer has been a kindergarten teacher for 32 years. “There is so much learning in kindergarten,” she says. “The look on their faces when it all comes together and they just get it is priceless.”
Janna teaches at Floyd Knobs Elementary School in Floyds Knobs, Ind. She works with a team of five kindergarten teachers. “These teachers are some of the hardest-working people I know,” she says.

Janna believes all children are gifted. “Some just open their presents a little later,” she says. “Every child has a strength — sometimes you just have to dig a little deeper to find it. All children are the light of someone’s life, and all children can learn.” Janna is learning, too. “Technology has really changed. It’s wonderful!”

Outside the classroom, Janna is busy with her family. She volunteers for her 16-year-old son’s music involvement and enjoys tending flowers. Janna says she would also like to volunteer more with her son at the food pantry at their church. “I find that very rewarding.”

She also brings music involvement into her classroom. “I love music,” she says. “We use it a lot in the classroom. Rhyme helps cement things in [when the children are learning].

“There are just so many rewards with teaching. It’s a huge responsibility but a privilege, as well.”
