Mrs. Janna Grandle, Fourth Grade Teacher
My name is Janna Grandle and I am thrilled to be joining the John C. Myers team! I am a lifelong resident of the Shenandoah Valley and have a deep love and strong roots in our community. I am a graduate of Harrisonburg High School and Bridgewater College. After over a decade working for Nationwide Insurance, I decided to return to school to obtain my certification in elementary education in order to fulfill my dream of teaching children. I feel blessed that that path has led me to work at one of the best elementary schools in the County! When I am not at school, I enjoy traveling, baking, reading, playing and watching sports and especially spending time with my husband, Whit, and our children, Braelyn, Cole and Alyssa. Janna joined the fourth grade team in 2016.
