Hello! My name is Janet Pierce. This is my 11th year teaching and 14th year in education. I have taught Kindergarten-12th grade in some capacity, but most of time has been spent teaching American History to grades 5-10.

Family

  • I am married to Justin. He is the tall manager at United--and maybe your boss! We have been married for 16 years. He is the cheese to my macaroni. We met at United when we were in college at MSU!! He was a full scholarship college football player!!! Hard work and dedication pay off! He has worked for United Supermarkets for 26 years
  • Justin and I have 3 children. Cole is 12 and a Bobkitten at the Junior High. Natalie is 10 and in 5th grade. Katy is 8 and in 3rd grade. They are a lot of fun and make me a better person and teacher!

Likes

  • I love to read. If it was up to me...I'd read all day. I enjoy mysterious "who done-it" fiction, biographies, history non-fiction, and teacher/motivational books.
  • I also love to exercise. On any given day you might find me teaching a fitness class (turbo kickboxing or PiYo), lifting weights, or riding my road bicycle. My husband and I ride in a few bike races a year. My farthest bike ride was 100 kilometers (62 miles). My husband has ridden in several 100 mile races! (Wow!)
  • I enjoy our farm. We have 130 acres north of town. It is beautiful! We have cows, chickens, dogs, and cats. I collect a lot of eggs each day!
  • I love the outdoors. The perfect vacation for me is the mountains! Sigh...nothing feels better than breathing in the piney smell of the mountain air!
  • I LOVE Texas Tech sports (esp. football & basketball), the Dallas Cowboys, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, and the CHILDRESS BOBCATS!
  • I love teaching. Helping others is like breathing to me. It makes me feel alive!!
