Mrs. Jane Melven

My name is Jane Melven, and I am so excited to be joining the Harbison West Elementary family this school year as a Virtual FIVE first grade teacher.  I have over 32 years of teaching experience in Lexington Richland Five and am looking forward to the opportunity to bring life to the magic of learning for my first grade students.  I am a native of Irmo and after graduating from Irmo High School, I continued my education at the University of South Carolina where I graduated with a degree in Education.  I also obtained a Masters degree in Education from the University of South Carolina and National Board Teacher Certification in Early Childhood.  My husband and I have three children.   In my free time, I love spending time with my family, gardening, reading, grilling out, playing Scrabble and boating on Lake Murray.  I know this is going to be a wonderful year of learning for my students and look forward to teaming with parents to help each child reach his or her fullest potential.
