Dear Parents/Guardians/Students,

My name is Elizabeth Jordan and I have been working for SJSUD since 1999.  I received my B.A, in Social Science with an emphasis in Child Development, Multiple Subjects Credential, Single Subject in English, single subject teaching credential in Computer Concepts and Applications and Masters Degree in Instructional Technology from SJSU.  This is my sixteenth year teaching middle school at Hoover.  I teach classes in Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Drama, Conservatory, and Stage Tech.  I am also qualified to teach computer classes and have taught Video Production and Keyboarding skills.  Drama and theatre remain my passions in both my personal and professional lives.

I want to welcome all my new students and parents to a fun and educational school year. I am so excited to work with you to make sure our Drama and Stage Tech students have the required social and academic skills to succeed.  Some of my teaching preferences include lots of hands on activities and projects. Ensemble is a must; my students will be working in pairs and in groups.  Students will have homework that is assigned to allow them to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the subject.I look forward to students having fun while learning!

I believe that communication between parents and teachers is critical.  I am best reached by email.  My email address is .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)  . Information about my classes, including homework, important information and dates to remember can be found on this webpage and on the individual class pages.

I am also available to meet the parents before school by appointment.  You can email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call the school at (408) 535-6274 to leave me a message.  I will return your call as soon as possible.

A little bit about myself: I live in Willow Glen with my husband Sean and my nine-year-old son Connor.  I have two adult sons, Jason and Joshua who are now on their own!  We have two dogs, Riley and Bella that keep us very busy. We enjoy our weekends swimming, camping, acting in local faires, and generally playing in the area.

Parents are always welcome in my class.  Volunteers are greatly appreciated.  I look forward to a fun and successful school year!

Mrs. Jordan
