Greetings! My name is Jan Klein and I am one of three 4th grade teachers at George Washington Carver Academy. I have two grown children. My daughter, who is also an MSU graduate, lives in New York and my son just began his college career this August. I am a bit of an adventurer and enjoy new challenges whether they are physical or mental. I received my BA in Education from Michigan State University in 1988. I have been teaching at GWCA for the past five years and prior to that I taught for Detroit Public Schools. During my time with GWCA I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade, with an emphasis in Math and Science. This year I will be teaching Science for the three fourth grade classes. I’m very passionate about Science and it thrills me to watch my students become passionate about Science too! Education empowers out children!
