Mrs. Maulhardt

Hi!  I've had the pleasure of teaching elementary school for over 20 years.  I started my career in Orange County, CA and moved to the Sacramento area 14 years ago.  I have worked in FCUSD for the past 14 years.  This is my 8th year at PJS and I love it here! I have experience teaching 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades.

I graduated from the University of Missouri (Go Tigers!) with my Bachelor in Education degree and also have a Masters degree in Educational Administration. I have a dog named Hazel.  She is a pug and is completely adorable!  I love to travel and see the world.  I also love to be out in nature camping, hiking, or kayaking.  Some of my favorite places to go are Lake Tahoe, Monterrey, and really anywhere else that is near the ocean.

In room 16, we focus on developing our independent learning skills, treating others with kindness and respect, and accepting our mistakes as steps to future success. I believe a child's growth and progress is affected heavily by their view of him or herself and of the world around them.  So we work on understanding our emotions, what we can and cannot control around us, and understanding that we may not be perfect at something yet...but that one day, with work and time, we will be much better at it.

I recently got married so my new name is Mrs. Maulhardt. For communication purposes through email and such, you will still find me as Jana Schmitt. 

I am happy to be working with your child this year!
