Hello! My name is Jan Modert. I am very excited about having your child in my class. I know we will have a great year with a lot of growth in learning.
I have lived in Sturgis all my life. I even attended Eastwood for my elementary schooling. After graduating from Sturgis High School, I moved to Mishawaka, Indiana. I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education from Bethel College. Currently, I am working on my Master's Degree in Reading through Spring Arbor University. I am anxious to utilize my degree in third grade. Third grade is my favorite and I always have fun with this age group. I am also very excited to be back in Sturgis. My parents own a local flooring business and my brother is starting college this year. I love being close to my family.
In my free time, I enjoy being with my friends, reading, playing piano, and traveling. While at Bethel, I was fortunate enough to spend a semester traveling the Pacific Rim. I adventured through New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, and China. Learning more about the world is one of my favorite things to do! I look forward to bringing my knowledge of different cultures into my classroom to enhance the learning experience.
I am looking forward to meeting all of you. If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Strong communication between parents and teachers supports success for all students. You can reach me at Eastwood Elementary by calling 659-1560 (ext. 2542). Or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
