For college she is a graduate from Mercyhurst University in 1999 with a degree in Elementary Education. She also taught 1st and 5th grades and Science and Religion to grades 6, 7 and 8 at St. John’ the Baptist for twelve years. When St. John-Holy Rosary closed in 2011 she went to Erie RISE Leadership Academy where she gained four years of experience in educational administrative positions as a Title I Teacher/Facilitator and Curriculum and Teacher/ Facilitator.
She earned a Master of Educational Leadership from Edinboro University in 2014 and currently completing her coursework towards principal certification (K-12).

Her greatest strengths include: collaborative leadership, strategic planning, empowering educators to develop their leadership and instructional skills. She fosters strong working relationships and open communication with school families and local and school communities to promote a shared vision of educational excellence.
As a Catholic educator she believes the greatest gifts we can model for our students are our faith in Jesus Christ and a life-long love for learning. Catholic education has been an important tradition in her family for five generations. Teaching in a Catholic School is not just a career for her, it is a vocation.
Her twelve years experience in hands-on-teaching in Catholic Schools and the past four years experience in educational administrative positions along with her educational studies over the years have prepared her well to be our educational leader at Blessed Sacrament. We welcome her to Blessed Sacrament School. Mrs. Jane Wagner can now proudly wear the black and gold for the Bulldogs after years of loyalty to the St. John – Knights. Her enthusiasm and love for learning and students will make our school a happy place for our students to learn and grow as future leaders in our community and our world.

Blessed Sacrament School is family oriented. Their focus is academics, faith, and family. These are priorities in our family. My children are happy and push themselves daily. It is truly like a family to us!
Have you ever been to a Catholic School? If not, I will tell you what it is like. Just to have the opportunity to learn about God is an amazing thing. God is so many things! He has the ability to create human beings, animals and plants. Jesus died for us to be free from sin. To be able to learn about God every day is such an important thing to me.
Our family has attended Blessed Sacrament School for three generations. Blessed Sacrament helps the students strive for academic excellence in a safe and positive environment while instilling Catholic values.
Our two children not only love their school and education, but the wonderful things they learn about their religion. After graduation from Blessed Sacrament, we intend to seek a Catholic High School, since our experience at BSS has been so enjoyable.
We are so happy with our decision to send our daughter to Blessed Sacrament. We love the academic and athletic programs the school has to offer. We know that our daughter will grow and become a much better student and person because of the environment of the school.
For us, it's tradition - Our parents went to BSS, we went here, and now our two oldest daughters have graduated from BSS and we still have two boys here. It just feels like home!
