Stacy Jordan

Greetings From New Jersey

Excited to Meet You!!!

Hello everyone, My name is Stacy Jordan. I've been in the Air Force for 17 years and am currently stationed in New Jersey. Prior to living in the beautiful state of New Jersey, we lived in Japan for 13 years and loved that life experience. My children consider Japan "home." I've also been married to my husband Jerome for 15 years and we have four beautiful children. Our family is our greatest accomplishment and the driving force the keeps me pushing to be better everyday.

Pursuing MAED Degree (Specialization-School Leadership in the 21st Century)

I chose to pursue my degree specializing in School Leadership in the 21st Century. I also have a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education which I received in June 2014. Being a military family, I have raised my children in Child Development Centers around the world and have seen good and not so great early childhood education programs and decided that I wanted to work in an early child education environment as either a Director of an existing facility or to build my own facility from the ground up. I would love to target the military communities and to be able to provide them with a quality program that allows them to feel comfortable when their children are dropped off. I've experienced first hand how hard it is to leave my children with "strangers" when I move to a new location and most of the time, the military doesn't care if you don't know anyone to watch your kids. It's expected that we find day care options and report to work right away. I want to give those families a sense of peace when their children are left in my care.

My School Days

Growing up as a student, I was taught at an early age the importance of doing well in school. My parents always made sure that our academics were a priority in the house. In general, I enjoyed school. I wasn't athletic and found my outlet in Music and joined the band in high school playing the flute. Playing music grew to be my stress reliever during high school. The biggest influence in my life during school were my parents and my band director. My parents always made sure that I did my best and if they thought I needed to be pushed out of my comfort zone...they pushed me. My band director was a big influence because he not only taught me to love music but taught me how to be responsible and achieve any goal that I set my mind to.
