Hi! My name is Jordan Mickelson and I am a fourth grade teacher at McCall Elementary. Just a quick glance at who I am: I grew up in the suburbs outside of Los Angeles in La Cañada, California. I spent my summers playing at the beach and my falls playing football. I went to college at Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington and California State Northridge. After college, I settled down and moved back up to the northwest and the North Idaho and Eastern Washington area. I came back to Whitworth University and got my Masters In Teaching in Elementary Education. Soon after I began substitute teaching and then taught sixth grade for a number of years before taking time to be a stay-at-home Dad with my two young children. The kids and I spent many wonderful years in North Idaho and Eastern Washington before moving to Plano in 2017. They are now growing up quickly and are in 4th and 3rd grade in PISD.
I love to bring fun and community into the classroom and make learning a meaningful experience where students grow as people, learn about building character and integrity, and really pushing themselves to be better all-around people.
