About Janie Shaw

Almost 20 years ago, after years of working in business management for a global airline in Chicago, I was recruited for a new position and my husband and I returned to his home state of Minnesota.

In 2005 with the birth of our first child, we officially became part of the Edina Public Schools Family.  Our oldest son began his first class at the age of 6 weeks in an early infant ECFE class, and we have proudly been a part of Edina Schools ever since.  My husband Dave and I have 2 sons. Our oldest is at Edina High School and our youngest is at Highlands Elementary.

I now own a small business and work from our home allowing me the time and flexibility to be involved in the schools. 

Some highlights of my time in the district and beyond:
