Mrs. Jana Kurrasch


"When you watch the news, look at social media or read the newspaper, you might get discouraged. You might feel like things are not right in our country, our world, and you might feel a little sad. But, I’m telling you, if you spend a day in my classroom - just one day - you will know everything is going to be okay. These kids are our future and our future is in good hands."

For three decades, Mrs. Kurrasch has molded young lives at The Oakridge School. The Lower School Teacher has seen a lot of changes in the landscape and its student body. During the school's 40th anniversary celebrations, she shared what she has learned.
