My name is Jana Forrester, and I have been teaching health and physical education for over 20 years. I am originally from Alabama, where I graduated from Auburn University with both my bachelors and masters degrees. I started my teaching career in Auburn City Schools, before moving to Georgia. I taught 6-8 grade in Griffin, Georgia for two years and coached basketball at Kelsey Middle and softball and golf at Griffin High. Later, I moved to Carroll County and have been teaching in the Temple community for 18 years. I taught at Temple Middle School for 12 years, where I coached girl's softball and basketball and coached tennis at Temple High School. I have been teaching physical education at Providence Elementary for the last  six years. I am also in charge of the running program at PES known as the Pavement Paws. I was named Teacher of the Year for Temple Middle School in 2014 and for Providence Elementary in 2018.  I am excited about a great year ahead.
