Jan Irwin

My name is Jan Irwin and I am the Reading Specialist at Darnaby Elementary.  I am also the Building Testing Coordinator for Darnaby and this year Tara Miller and I are sharing the ULIT position.  This is my sixth year at Darnaby, and I am looking forward to another wonderful school year! 

Before moving to Darnaby, I worked as a Reading Specialist at Briarglen for three years and at Clark for six years.  I have also taught 4th grade, 5th grade, and special education.  I earned my bachelor's degree at Oral Roberts University where I majored in special education with a concentration in elemetary education.  Several years later I earned my master's degree in reading and language at Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA.  Twice I have had the privilege of being voted Teacher of the Year by my amazing colleagues.   

I believe that reading is a foundation for most everything we do in life.  My desire is for all students to develop a true love for reading and to become successful readers.
