Degrees and Certifications:
BA California State Northridge MA Whitworth University
Hey y'all! My name is Jordan Mickelson and I am a fourth grade teacher at McCall Elementary. Just a little bit about me, I grew up in a small town in southern California just outside of Los Angeles, and grew up loving the beach and football. I received my Bachelor's from Cal State University of Northridge and my Master's from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington.
After college, I settled down in the North Idaho area, teaching sixth grade, coaching middle school football, and rasing two amazing kiddos. In 2017, after many wonderful years in North Idaho and Eastern Washington, we moved to Plano and have been enjoying our Texas adventure ever since!
I really do enjoy what I do and feel lucky teaching, coaching, and shaping young minds. I think something unique that I bring to the classroom, is a passion for building and investing in the classroom community and culture. I strongly believe that by focusing on creating authentic relationships, incorporating fun, and establishing a community of mutual respect, that my students are able to come into a space where they feel valued, safe, and are constantly being challenged with new opportunities and can really embrace learning!
