Jordan Named Teacher Of The Year At Franklin

RAHWAY—Venisha Jordan was named teacher of the 2010-2011 school year at Franklin School in Rahway.

Jordan was raised and educated in Rahway.  She has performed community service by participating in Girl Scouts and volunteering at Rahway Hospital.  She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics at Rutgers University in New Brunswick and attained a Master of Arts degree in Administration and Supervision in Education from Saint Peters College.


Jordan has always had a desire to teach.  She knew she liked the satisfying feeling teaching gave when she worked as a tutor at the JFK Community Center while in high school.  Prior to teaching, Jordan had professional work experience in the business world dealing with stocks and bonds.  She began her teaching career in Newark at Madison Avenue Elementary School.

Jordan joined the Franklin School family in September 1998, as a fourth grade teacher.  She has taught second, fourth, and fifth grades.  She left for a year to teach in Atlanta, Ga., but soon returned because there was no place like home.

Jordan currently teaches the fifth grade as she has for nine years.  She also serves as a Mentor Teacher, Cooperating Teacher with Kean University, Representative for Franklin School’s REA, and School-Based Team Member for the Academy for Leadership in Science Instruction.

When Jordan is not spending time at Franklin School, she is with her husband and two children.  She stays busy participating in her children’s school and extracurricular activities.
