Mrs. Jana Cantrell


My name is Jana Cantrell, and I am a 3rd grade teacher here at Vernon Elementary. I was born and raised right here in Vernon, so I truly bleed black and gold. I graduated from Mississippi University for Women with a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education in May of 2013. In May of 2017, I graduated from the University of West Alabama with a degree in Instructional Leadership. I am also currently continuing my education as an educational specialist in Instructional Leadership. I have been married to Todd Cantrell for going on 9 years now. We have two beautiful daughters Ansley Jo (6), and Avery (3). Spending time with my family is my absolute favorite thing in the world to do. I also love teaching the wonderful children of Vernon. It is truly a dream that I get to wake up, and love what I do daily. The staff here at VES is second to none, and they make the job as an educator a complete joy! Go Dawgs!
