Dana Jetton

I am an educator who is passionate about building relationships with students, their families, school faculty, and the community around us. This helps students in figuring out who they are and who they want to become. It is exciting to see students set goals for their future and develop plans to achieve them. My favorite part of education is making connections and hearing success stories from past students! I also find great pleasure in assisting teachers in relating classroom curriculum to life after high school.

I am married to a wonderful man, Ron. I have two amazing sons, Tommy and Will. I have two bonus children (via marriage), Gavin and Ellie. I must add, we have a precious little Yorkie, as well. Her name is Porsche.

Away from school, I love to grill out, watch movies, and travel. I have recently started to take up running as a hobby. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family, be it on the family farm with my parents, road-trips to visit our oldest sons (Auburn and Tuscaloosa), or just vegging around home.

I am far more blessed than I deserve and am thankful for the life I have been given EVERY SINGLE DAY!
