Hello everyone! My name is Jordan Thacker and this is my 2nd year teaching at Foust. I am so excited to start this year with you all and I know we are going to learn so much together! Engaging in the classroom with us will be our TA Mr. Hines. He has worked with me since my starting at Foust, and he offers so much support to our classroom. :)
I grew up in the Winston/Kernersville area before moving to Greensboro to attend UNCG (GO SPARTANS!!) I earned my BA in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration of Birth-Kindergarten Education. Early childhood development quickly became my passion, and I spent my first year of teaching in Pre-K before coming to Foust as a Kindergarten teacher. I quickly fell in love with Kindergarten and I am excited to begin another year in this AWESOME grade!
I am a dog mom to the most sweet, handsome little puppy you will ever see! His name is Oreo, and I am sure you all will hear me talk about him too much throughout the school year LOL. I love to hike, swim, travel, and you will always catch me with some sort of book, reading any chance I can get. :)
I know this school year is going to be different for all of us, but what I love about Foust the most is that we stick together as a school, working to face these challenges with optimism and encouragement. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns, and I will do my best to provide you with all that you will need to be successful. We could not do this if it weren't for the support within our families and community. I will list my contact information below! Let's get ready to SOAR!
