Ms. Mitchell Jordan
Where are you from? - I am from the Dominican Republic. Moved to the United States when I was entering the sixth grade. I have been in Grays Harbor for three years and have put down roots in Ocean Shores with my children.
High school and college experience - I graduated from Cascade High School, Class of 1996. I am currently attending WGU for my teaching degree.
Years of teaching and experience - I am excited to be working with the North Beach School District for my third year.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing the Ocean Shores Elementary students as a Paraeducator my first year. Last year I was at Pacific Beach Elementary as the P.E and Preschool Teacher.
Previously I taught Fitness and Nutrition at the Seattle YMCA.The Programs I worked with included the ACT Program, Lose to Win, Diabetes Prevention Program, Along with Zumba, Tabata, and Active Older Adult Fitness classes.
My Philosophy - I Believe that children learn best when they are respected, heard, and fully engaged in a supportive learning environment. Through inclusive problem solving and creative activities. I teach perseverance of hard concepts by coming up with creative interactive ways to learn new material, and making learning fun.
I cultivate a safe and accepting classroom by balancing nurturing with challenges, respect with high expectations, and encouragement with accountability.
Education does not stop at the classroom. An individual’s ability to learn is greatly influenced by many other factors such as their socio-economic background, culture, and family life. I take time to listen and understand my students and their families to get to know them, so that I can be a more effective teacher for their needs.

How would you describe yourself and your hobbies and interests - I am an energetic positive person with a huge heart and a zest for life. Always striving to bring joy to others and improving myself.
I love spending time with my kids being silly. We do a lot of legos, dramatic play and jumping on the trampoline. I enjoy cooking, baking, fitness, being outdoors, meditation, and dancing a lot!
