About Me

1st Grade

My name is Janet Habina and this is my 11th year teaching. This year, I am once again Co-Teaching with Mrs. Gilmore!

I received my Bachelors of Science in Education from Bloomsburg University and my Masters of Arts in School Counseling from Wilmington University. I am presently looking into my next educational venture. I love learning and finding way to improve myself as a not only a teacher but a person.

It is my philosophy that each student who enters my classroom is a unique individual with special talents, gifts and abilities. It is my job to discover these and help each student to grow not only academically, but also socially and emotionally. Mrs. Gilmore and I create an environment that is caring, safe, engaging, supports taking risks, encourages teamwork and challenges each child to reach beyond his or her potential. In order to create a classroom that is conducive to learning we guide our students to be creative, use their sense of wonder, and promote being respectful for all things and people. 

Some of my favorite things to do are to read, spend time with my family, go to the beach and explore different places with my daughter. I am looking forward to a great year!
