Ms. Janis Fritz

Hi, my name is Janis Fritz, and I am your child’s physical education teacher. I love teaching at both North and East Elementary campuses. I have two beautiful daughters. Allison is 29 years old, and a graduate of Texas Tech University. She is an Advertising and Fashion Design major. At presrent, she is an analyst for Christus Good Shepherd in Longvview. Alayna is 25 years old, she graduated with her Master's in Architecture from Louisiana Tech. At present, she is working for Stantec in Plano an architecture firm that builds and designs schools.  Alayna is getting married in February to Alex Scorge, and I am so excited to be adding a son-in-law to the family. Also, I am an active member at First Baptist Church Hallsville where I teach a women's Bible study.

I am a 1981 graduate of East Texas Baptist University. I started my career at Alto I.S.D. as a Junior High/ High School P.E. teacher and coach. After the one year at Alto, I moved to Hallsville, TX.  This is  beginning my 35th year teaching for Hallsville I.S.D., and my 36th year of teaching altogether.  I started out in Hallsville teaching 5th and 6th grade P.E., moved to 1st grade P.E. , and now to North, and East Elementary P.E.
