Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Island Park Families!
My name is Jordan Jacobsen. I have been teaching at Island Park for 5 years alongside my amazing team! I am so lucky to be apart of this community. Even though we are in unprecedented times, I can promise you that I am more excited than ever to work with your students in a new way!
Before Island Park, I went to Western Washington University and received certification in both Early Childhood General Education and Early Childhood Special Education. Once I began teaching, I added another certification of Kindergarten through 8th grade. I believe learning is lifelong and I am always looking for the best practices in teaching!
I love kindergarten because they grow SO much, both academically and socially. It is so exciting to be apart of that growth and to always celebrate such powerful milestones with students and their families.
Outside of teaching, I love to spend time with family and friends. I grew up in Kirkland and went to school in Bellevue, but now I have family in Montana, Idaho, and California, so I am often out and about visiting them in my free time.
I look forward to a great year filled with learning and fun!
