I had the privilege of working with Jan Sawyer at the school where I taught. Jan was one of the greatest administrators I've ever worked with; she was always willing to listen and provide expert advice. Jan is extremely generous with her time and attention, ensuring that everyone feels heard and appreciated

The boys and I have so much love, appreciation & respect for Jan. She is missed from Jan Reimer school tremendously. She is such a powerhouse and so engaged & committed to everything she does, every venture, and every person, parent & student that she touches. Knowing her has been so incredible.

Jan has changed lives through her excellent and caring teaching. She listens to others with compassion and an ability to help others problem-solve. She has high expectations, but offers the support needed to fulfill those expectations. She would make a truly outstanding trustee.
