Mrs. Jana Rea

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Forbes Middle School! This is my 4th year at FMS, but my 20th year to teach.  I taught in Northern Virginia for 3 years and in Allen, Texas for 13 years.  

I teach ESL (English as a Second Language).  This class is for students who speak another language at home in addition to speaking English.  ESL is an all English instructional program offered in all grade levels. The ESL program uses the academic and cultural experiences of our students as a platform to provide instruction with an intense focus on language learning strategies in listening, speaking, reading and writing proficiency.

A little bit about me:

I live in Round Rock with my fantastic family!  I am married to my great husband, Shane.  We have 3 awesome kids.  Kyle is 21.  He is a swimming coach and instructor for Nitro and he is also the Founder and CEO of Atlas Adaptive Sports- which is a swimming and sports  program for individuals with disabilities.    Cory is 16 and is a Senior in Round Rock in hopes of becoming a Software Engineer.  Cameron is 8 and loves to swim, ride bikes, and have fun!  Our family enjoys going to the movies,  going to the beach, and game nights!


Thank you for sharing your child with me. I look forward to a great year!!
