Laura Jordan TEACHER

Language Arts      

I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I believe that students do their best work when they feel part of an authentic, supportive learning community, so my work begins with helping students know they have a place in my room where they will be encouraged and expected to work hard, have fun, and become inspired by the possibilities that the arts create. A particular passion of mine is teaching literacy strategies and literary elements through musicals, and I have run writing contests for students whose lives have been transformed by the power of musical theater, and I have been fortunate enough to I escort three different groups of writing contest winners to New York to see several musicals and meet the casts!
