Hi.  My name is Jana Budoff Maynard and I am originally from Monticello, NY.  I moved here when I was 11years old.  While visitng my husbands family in Hawaii in 2003, we were married on the beach!   I am married to John who I met on a trip to AK. He was a commercial fisherman in the Bering Sea at the time we met. He has since retired from that profession!  We have one son who is now an adult and many "adopted" kids! (most whom were former students). 

My parents, brother and sister in law and my niece and three nephews all live in Colorado. I love visiting them! 

I love teaching sixth grade because I learn so much from the students!  This is a great age!

In addition to teaching I have my own foundation, The Sugarbelle Foundation. Our mission is keeping pets and people together through education and assistance.  We do lots of fundraisers so we can help others. I also do some rescue work as well.  I love it!
