Janet Bass 2nd Grade


  I was born in Dallas, Tx. I grew up in Irving, Tx and spent my summers and weekends in Martin's Mill. My father graduated from Martin's Mill in 1950. I enjoy traveling and have traveled to most of the 49  states as well as Italy, Spain and Mexico. I love animals and live on a 40 acre farm with 6 horses, 3 dogs, and 2 cats, along with my husband, Rod. Two of our children graduated from Martin's Mill, Sara in 2007 and Sam in 2010. Sam married Brittany Slaughter, a 2007 graduate, in April of 2014. They have a baby girl named Brinley, born February 4, 2015. My brother lives in Montana and I love to spend a lot of my summers there.
  I graduated from Irving High in 1978 and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from East Texas State, Commerce in 1982. I went to work for Zimmerman Sign Co. in Dallas and worked as a graphic artist until 1994. I went back and obtained my teacher certification and moved to Martin's Mill in 1995. I started teaching at Martin's Mill in January of 2000. I am certified to teach Elementary grades 1-8 self contained as well as all level Art.
