Mrs. Marquidria Jordan

Hello, I am Mrs. Jordan and I am so excited to be your 1st grade teacher this year! I am originally from Rock Hill, South Carolina, but currently live in Aiken, South Carolina. I have been married to my husband, Maurice Jordan for 9 years and we have two beautiful boys, Karter who is six and Kayden, who is three. I love spending time with my family and friends and love to cook, clean, read, and draw in my spare time! I am thrilled to be your teacher and I am looking forward to learning and growing with you! This school year will be filled with fun, LOTS of learning and new adventures!

I received my Bachelors in Sociology from Lander University. I also obtained a Master of Science degree in counseling studies from Capella University and a Masters degree in Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University.

Teaching Philosophy

My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas. I believe that there are five essential elements that are conducive to learning. (1) The teacher's role is to act as a guide. (2) Students must have access to hands-on activities. (3) Students should be able to have choices and let their curiosity direct their learning. (4) Students need the opportunity to practice skills in a safe environment. (5) Technology must be incorporated into the school day.
