Mr. Jordan started his interest in teaching, as a full time teacher at the Learning Center of Hope, from 1990 – 1992. This was a private school, established and operated by his wife, Bonnie Hawkins-Jordan. Their program provided instructions for children from infancy to 12th grade. He later worked as a substitute in the Keene Independent Public School District. Working with diverse students, including Hispanic, African American, and Marshalis, inspired him to pursue his M.Ed., which would allow him to become a leader in education, thereby making a difference in the lives of our children.
Mr. Jordan had a distinguished career in academia as a teacher, and an assistant principal of both elementary and middle school campuses. After serving in the public school arena from 1992 to 2003, Mr. Jordan became a teacher and principal serving in Adventist Education. He held positions as teacher/principal in several schools, including Dallas, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Houston, all in the Southwest Region Conference of SDA, until 2014. Upon receiving a call from a friend in the South Central Conference, Mr. Jordan decided to take the present position, as principal, at Emmanuel Christian Academy in Mobile, Alabama.
Mr. Jordan brings vast experiences in teaching, leadership and academia from several levels of the educational spectrum to propel Emmanuel Academy further as they proceed toward attaining re-accreditation, which involves plans to extend Emmanuel to a full 12th grade Senior Academy.
Mr. Jordan is supported by his wife, Bonnie Hawkins-Jordan; sons Lerone, Jacquay, Jermicah; daughter, Dariana; daughter-in-law, Jearine; and four grandchildren, Kali, Lerone Jr., Kayden, and Joshua.
