Subjects Taught


I have a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Music Education from East Carolina University...GO PIRATES!



I have been teaching in Wilson County Schools for 15 years at Lucama Elementary School.  I also work one day as music teacher at Lee Woodard Elementary School.  I am a Nationally Board Certified teacher and Orff Certified.  I am active on the NC Elementary Music Education Board and most recently served as the chair for NC Elementary Honors Chorus.  I enjoy conducting All County groups from around the state...BUT...Most importantly...I LOVE TO TEACH!


Welcome to MUSIC!  My name is Jana Winders and I am so pleased to share my love of music with our children.  Our room is a safe and caring environment for children to express themselves musically and learn an appreciation for the ARTS!

I live here in Wilson with my husband Rick and our two children, Madison (9) and Benjamin (6).  We also share our house with two beagles, Little Orphan Annie and Abbey Road, and Figaro, our tuxedo cat.

In addition to teaching music, I sing in my church choir and play handbells.  I also LOVE to participate in the Arts Council Summer productions and most recently played "Lady Thiang" in The King and I, Fiona's mother and the DRAGON in Shrek, the Musical.  Almost equal to my passion for music is my passion for READING!  I have always loved to read and could spend hours in Barnes and Noble...where I worked for 6 years through high school and college.
