Janna Lynas, Manager of Early Learning/Teacher

Ms. Janna finds herself fascinated everyday with the gift of life. A mother to four mostly teenaged
children and a graduate of Indiana University with an Elementary Education degree, she has taught in schools from Bloomington to England. She likes to go the long way through the woods and believes children simply need time, space, and freedom to play - they will take care of the rest. One of her favorite play memories is catching fireflies in the backyard of her family farm.
