Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the Hartselle City Schools website. We are glad you are visiting us to learn more about the wonderful things going on in Tiger Country.
To introduce myself, my name is Jan Byrd. I currently serve as the Administrative Assistant to Superintendent, Dr. Dee Dee Jones. In the past, I have served as a volunteer mom, PTO officer, Band and Choral Booster officer, Substitute, Instructional Aide, Hearing Impaired Interpreter, and Bookkeeper, before moving into my current position in 2007. I currently serve as the Past President of the Alabama Association of Administrative Assistants.
My family is made up of my husband Chris ('84 Hartselle graduate); son, Caleb ('07 Hartselle graduate) and wife Katie Thornton Byrd; and Son, Ethan ('09 Hartselle graduate). Chris works as a Production Planner at United Launch Alliance; Caleb is an Army JAG Attorney at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina; and, Ethan is an Area Safety Manager in Fayetteville, Arkansas with the Vincet Group.
My hobbies include cooking, sewing, and music. I currently serve as the Worship Leader at First Baptist Church's Ignite Contemporary Service. I am also the bass player and backup vocalist in the Hartselle City Schools' Uncommon Core Band.
I will tell you like I tell all new employees, "If you have a question and do not know who to ask, call me - I will either have the answer, know who has the answer, or I will dig until I find an answer for you." Let me know if I can be of assistance to you.
