Today's Choice for Tomorrow's Future

7th Grade

Jayna FarmerScience

I lived in a small-town Franklin, Ohio for 22 years of my life. My adventurous side decided I should leave my whole life behind and experience what else the world has to offer. After receiving my Bachelors and Masters in Education at Wright State University, I started my desired career since childhood. Lucky for me, I ended up right here as a proud Blue Jay. I will NEVER stop rooting for the Ohio State Buckeyes though! 

I love all things sports and learning. There is always something new to be learned and anyone can do it. My favorite quote is from Albert Einstein, "Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."

Pascha WeaverCivics

My name is Pascha Weaver, I’m a native of Florida and I teach 7th grade Civics.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Broadcast Journalism from Florida A&M University and a Master of Fine Arts in Theatre from the School of Performing Arts at the University of Central Florida.

Before coming to education, I was a television news producer for more than a decade and an actor and singer on many stages including some local ones at; Walt Disney World, The Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center and the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre.

I have worked and lived in many places including Chicago, Germany and Dubai, but no matter where I’ve been, I’ve always had a love for children and helping them reach their greatest potential.  This love brought me to the classroom, where I’ve enjoyed teaching 5th, 7th and 8th grade for the last 10 years.
