    Life Skills

    My name is Jamie Foster.  This is my 14th year to teach at Van Buren Elementary and my 19th year all together.  I am originally from Illinois and went to college at Eastern Illinois University, where I earned my degree. I have 2 children who attended PNGISD. My husband, Yancey is a Hamshire Fannett graduate, class of 1990.  He went to Lamar University and University of Texas medical branch in Houston.  He is a nurse practitioner and owns and operates a local urgent care clinic.  My daughter, Maddy, is a sophomore at Lamar University studying nursing.  My son, Yancey, graduated from LIT in process operations.  I am an Indian through and through and love the purple and white but I am also the mother to a English Bulldog, Vinny!  I am so excited for the 2017-18 school year. Scalp 'Em Indians!
