Subjects Taught


I graduated from Bradley High School in 1983.  In 1985, I graduated from Cleveland State Community College and graduated from Lee University with a degree in Elementary Education.  My master's degree in education is from Tusculum University.

I knew that I wanted to be a teacher for most of my life.  I have been teaching for 24 years.  I started at East Cleveland Elementary in 1987 teaching 4th grade.  Fortunately, I came to Black Fox in 1989 and I have been teaching 5th grade almost every year since that time. Teaching 5th grade is always exciting!


My name is Janet Ownby, and I have lived in Bradley County all my life.  My parents are Jay and Betty Murray.  My father is one of 17 children.  I have one sister and one brother who are both older than I am.  I have been married to Tim Ownby for 27 years, and I have one daughter, Sara, who is 18 years old.  My husband is the manager at Cleveland Tire Center, and my daughter graduated from Walker Valley High School.
