My name is Jana Brinkley and I am the Pre-K teacher here at Tushka.
I grew up on Blue River near Connerville, OK and graduated from McLish Public Schools in 1988, where I was involved in basketball, 4-H, and livestock showing. In 1993, I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education from East Central University.
I have three incredible boys. Scott is a 2013 Tushka graduate and a 2017 SEOSU graduate. He is now working on a Master’s degree and is a safety engineer for Hensel Phelps Construction. Connor is a 2015 Tushka graduate and a 2019 ECU graduate. He is now working on a Master’s degree in accounting and is the controller for Southern Oklahoma Livestock Auction. Mason is a 2017 Tushka graduate and is currently a junior and playing baseball at the University of Evansville in Evansville, Indiana.
I enjoy reading a good book, but would rather be outdoors hunting, fishing, camping, or horseback riding. My favorite place to be is in the mountains.
