Ms. Janet Jelinek

    This is my 35th year as a teacher, my 27th in Fort Bend ISD.  I am certified in Elementary Education, as a Reading Specialist, and as a Reading Recovery teacher.  I have always felt at home in the classroom and love encouraging children to believe in themselves, think, try new things, and explore the world through books and knowledge.
   I was raised in Amarillo, Texas by wonderful parents with 4 sisters and 3 brothers.  I participated in several sports and swam on the varsity swim team in high school.  I graduated from Texas Tech with a Bachelors of Science in Merchandising.  Later, I went to The University of Houston to get my Masters in Education and began teaching in 1986.
   I have two WONDERFUL children.  My son, Jonathan, is 28, graduated from A&M in 2017, and is working as a construction engineer in Austin, TX.  My daughter, Jamie, is 25, graduated from The University of Texas in Austin in 2018 with an honors degree in Rhetoric and Sociology. She worked for two years and has just returned to UT as a TA and student.  She is working on her Masters in Political Rhetoric.  
  In addition to teaching, I spend my time hiking and attending Zumba class.  I enjoy gardening, drawing, painting, scrap booking, and reading.  Of course, I also appreciate time visiting my children in Austin.
