Jennifer Putman


Welcome to Janie Stark Elementary, home of the Stallions! I am honored to serve the staff, students, and community of a school with such a rich tradition of excellence. 

I have had the privilege of serving students as a teacher, instructional specialist, and administrator over the course of my career. With each experience, I have developed a relentless commitment to the academic, social, and emotional success for all students. I believe every child can learn and succeed with the influence of amazing educators, positive parent-school relationships, and a joyful and engaging learning environment! 

I am a graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Science and the University of Texas at Arlington with a master's degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies.

I am so blessed to have a wonderful network of family and friends that surround me. I have two beautiful children, Avery (15) and Aiden (12). You can find us enjoying the outdoors, spending time with family and friends, or watching movies in our spare time. Personally, I enjoy running and reading to relax and unwind. 

I am so honored to serve the students, families, and community of Janie Stark. My door is always open and I welcome your conversation and collaboration as we work together to make Stark the best educational experience for all students. I look forward to walking alongside you this year as we celebrate our success together!

Proud to be a Stallion,
Jennifer Putman
