The following story was shared by Barnesville Exempted Village Schools in selecting Jon Jordan as a 2016 Celebrate Teaching Distinguished Educator. 

Jon Jordan is one of the best teachers I have seen. He has been a science teacher in the past and has transitioned into a full-time Project Lead the Way teacher over the last two years. Mr. Jordan connects with his students on an adult level, and he pushes them to achieve things beyond their imagination. He has excellent rapport with students and staff, which helps when collaborating in teams. 

Mr. Jordan is very well respected by the students, parents, staff, and the Barnesville community. He started taking a group of students to compete in robotics events this year. Our middle school team placed second in the state in their first year of competing! 

Jon Jordan is more than deserving of the 2016 Celebrate Teaching Distinguished Educator Award based on his level of commitment to eduction and his dedication to the students of Barnesville Middle School!
