Jordan Folks - Digital Learning Coach
Jordan Folks serves our Wagner team as our Digital Learning Coach. She has 12 years in education - 7 years as an 8th grade Science teacher, 2 years as a Biology teacher, and 3 years as a Digital Learning Coach. Her love of science began when her grandfather took her on nature walks. They would collect various objects and go back home to identify them. Whether it was watching a meteor shower or reading National Geographic as a kid, she has always had a questioning nature and has always loved to learn. She became an educator to help spark curiosity in her own students and help them learn to question.
Mrs. Folks graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Biology from West Texas A&M University. She is most excited to be a part of Wagner because of our shared belief in possibilities: the possibilities that emerge when you empower your students, the possibilities that appear with an inspired vision, and the possibilities that develop when teachers are committed to learning and growing as educators. Jordan would be the first person to tell you that the art of teaching is possibile without technology, but when integrated into a classroom with skill and purpose it can transform the educational experience for students and unlock endless possibilities.
Outside of school, Jordan loves to cook (without recipes), kayak and fish. She has an amazing family to which she is honored to be a part of. She has a supportive and loving husband, with three sons that inspire her daily to be a better person.
