Hi!!! I am Ms. Jana McLachlan--Ms. M to most at school:) I love teaching young children. I have been teaching Early Childhood students (K-2) for over 20 years. For 11 of those years I have been teaching Kindergarten here at Hawthorn Academy. I graduated from Weber State University with a dual bachelor of science degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. To better meet student needs I then returned and earned by Special Education endorsement. I have also researched and participated in training to teach reading using best practices strategies.
My passions are my family of eight children and their spouses, 14 grandchildren and their pets--4 dogs, 2 cats, and many fish! I also enjoy collecting children's books, reading, and camping.
