Hello Vikings! I'm Mrs. Jordan! Welcome to 6th grade English Language Arts. We are going to have a fun year of reading, writing, and discussion. While we will begin our year with remote learning, I will make an effort to get to know each and every one of you. This is my third year here at Northwest. Prior to becoming a Viking, I taught elementary in Greensboro and Winston-Salem.
I am a graduate of ECU and UNCG. I hold my bachelor's in Broadcast Journalism and my masters in Elementary Education. I am originally from Winston-Salem, but I currently live with my family in Oak Ridge. We have three children, all ages six and under, and our golden retriever. When we're not at home, we are spending our time in Southport or at the beach. I am a regular at Chick-Fil-A and Target, and I love to read in my downtime.
While you are taking my class, please be sure to select a book for your independent reading. My preference is that this is a new book you haven't read before. Each day we will apply our new skill to your independent reading. If you do not have a book at home, we will set up a conference time to find something that you will enjoy reading! I am looking forward to spending time with your student this year and getting to know him/her as a reader and writer. We will be working in small groups for differentiated learning, as well as whole class, partner work, and independent learning.
The best way to reach me is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not hesitate to reach out for any questions or concerns you may have.
