Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from UNC Wilmington with a degree in Elementary Education in 1983.
Mrs. Rita Jordan
My name is Rita Jordan. I am a native of Jacksonville, and graduated from Jacksonville High School in 1979. After college, I married someone in the military. We moved away from and back to Jacksonville several times. I've taught in North Carolina, South Carolina, Maine, and Virginia. I've taught grades third through sixth, both in the elementary setting and in middle school. My favorite is what I'm teaching now, fifth grade.
So, I was lucky enough to gain a great deal of experience and knowledge in my travels. After my husband retired from the military, we moved back here once again. My husband opened a small business, and I am now happy to say that we are here to stay. We have one daughter, named Emily and two dogs, one named Cocoa and the other named Grace. I also have a twin sister.
