Greetings! My name is Ms. Jordan and this will be my first year at WHS and my 8th year teaching in BCPS! I am excited to join the Art Department at Woodlawn High School, the community where I started my teaching career and grew up.

I enjoy coffee, reading, running, lazy beach days, and of course creating!In my free time I'm usually hanging out with my daughter or binge watching a new series or old horror films, or trying a new food! This year I'm looking forward to meeting new students, learning new things and settling in to our 'new normal'.
