Ms. Janell Medearis

Hello and welcome to Ms.  Medearis' classroom. I grew up in San Francisco, but my family moved to Pittsburg in 1989 and I attended and graduated from Pittsburg High in 1993.  I have enjoyed working in the Pittsburg unified school district for 19+ years. I have been working at Highlands Elementray for 13 years. 

Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience. I cannot do this without the help of you, the parents. We are partners in the learning process.

I believe that the parent-teacher relationships  are necessary for maximum school success. I will communicate through my website, Email - and ClassDojo. Click here to join   ClassDojo Invite . I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
