Adjunct Professor of Elementary Education/Mathematics
Dr. Jan Fackler joined the staff of Trinity International University-Florida as an adjunct professor in 2016 for the Elementary Education Program. Dr. Fackler joined the faculty with more than 40 years of experience in education, including in public, private, and college institutions. She has served at various schools in Ohio and Florida as an elementary teacher on several levels, mathematics specialist, professional development developer and instructor, professional development district director, and college professor.
Dr. Fackler formerly taught mathematics education as an adjunct professor at the University of Miami, Saint Thomas University, and Nova Southeastern University before coming to Trinity. While working for the Miami-Dade County Public Schools with the Office of Professional Development and Evaluation, and as an adjunct professor for the University of Miami, she began her advanced doctoral studies in mathematics education at Curtin University of Science and Technology. After earning her doctorate degree in mathematics she began teaching at Nova Southeastern University as an adjunct professor of mathematics from 2006—2015.
After retiring from the Miami-Dade County Public School System as the administrator for the Center for Professional Development, Dr. Fackler felt the Lord calling her to a new venture away from public education. After much prayer for a new direction she was approached by Dr. Butler and given the opportunity to join the staff at Trinity International University. She has discovered a whole new environment of education filled with love and compassion, change that has been orchestrated by the Lord and welcomed with open arms.
Dr. Fackler has been married for more than thirty-five years to a wonderful husband. She has been blessed with three grown children, two sons, and a daughter. Additionally, she has four-legged children whom she adores very much, four canine and two feline.
