Mrs. Jane E Barden
I am thrilled to be teaching fourth grade at Discovery Elementary! I earned a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology from the University of Arizona, and I received my Elementary Teaching license from Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis. Prior to teaching, I managed a small corporate fitness center in Washington, D.C. for several years. My past teaching experiences include being a kindergarten and first grade teacher at Forest Grove Elementary for seven years and substituting in Loudoun County for six years. I love to spend time running, hiking, gardening, and watching HGTV. I am passionate about the Indianapolis Colts, the Indiana Pacers, my children, Emma and Maxfield, and my husband, Scott plus our menagerie of dogs, a cat, and my daughter's horse!
I look forward to discovering and exploring new worlds with your fourth grader!
