Welcome to San Augustine Special Education Department
My name is Janiece Kaylan Metcalf and I am 49 years old. I am blessed to be married for 30 years to my husband, Johnny. We have 2 wonderful children, a 23-year-old son, Garrett and a 17-year-old daughter, Kendyl. I am a 1992 graduate of Zavalla High School and have been in education for 23 years. I obtained my associate and my bachelor’s degrees from Lamar University, my Master’s in Educational Administration from University of Phoenix, and my Educational Diagnostician Certification from Sul Ross State University. We still call the Zavalla area home, as we live in a log house with Sam Rayburn Reservoir as our backyard and the Angelina National Forest as our neighbor. I have been an Educational Diagnostician for 9 years and was a Career and Technology teacher prior to that. I am honored to be the 2014 Gilbert I. “Buddy” Low Excellence in Education Award winner. I am coming to San Augustine ISD from Lufkin ISD where I worked at the District Education Center as an Educational Diagnostician. In addition to working at Lufkin ISD, I have also worked at Zavalla ISD, Huntington ISD and Warren ISD. I am excited about getting back to the small school environment, which is where I feel most at home. I have a passion for travel and adventure. If I am not traveling away from East Texas, you can find me sitting on the sideline watching my daughter play softball or as my husband's crappie fishing partner.
