Jan Overbey

Jan Overbey Years at the District?
I have been with the district since April of 1978. OMG that's a long time. ha I started out driving school bus and did that until about 7 1/2 years ago. The responsibility of all those lives could really be overwhelming sometimes. From fogged up windows, rain, wind, sometimes snow, and an occasional fight kept everything interesting. It was a job that I thoroughly enjoyed.

What you love about your job?
In 1986 I applied for the position of Librarian at East High and have been there ever since. Working close with the students has been very rewarding. Just knowing that you have been able to help a student receive their diploma is worth it all. I would not trade my job working with the East High students, they are great.

Something interesting very few people know about you.
My husband and I went on a 3 week camping tour of the east coast of Australia for our 25th anniversary. The Gold Coast and the Barrier Reef were beautiful and the people were wonderful. I would go back in a heartbeat. I enjoy quilting and going to the beach in my spare time. My years with the district have been very great. I would not trade it for any other job!!
