I was the principal of Armistead Gardens Elementary School where Jan served as a paraprofessional in our special education department . She was dedicated and caring. She was respected and loved by our students and staff. Jan would do anything to support her colleagues and go the extra mile for her students. When I remember Jan, I think of her wonderful personality and lovely smile. She was an outstanding educator and made a difference in the lives of her students.
