Mrs. Olga Jordan /former McFadden/
Welcome to WHS German course page! I am the high school German instructor for language levels I, II, III, and IV. I have been teaching at WHS since 2008. I have also served as a district Teacher Leader 2018-2022 and been on the WHS Steering Team as a Professional Learning Community Facilitator since then. I have a degree in Linguistics and Pedagogy from Kaluga State Pedagogical University in Russia, a teacher certification from Missouri State University, and a Master's degree in Educational Technology from Missouri State University. I am honored to have been selected 2018-2019 District Teacher of the Year and 2019-2020 Regional Teacher of the Year as well as one of the semi-finalists for MO Teacher of the Year.
I absolutely love teaching students foreign language skills and helping them open their eyes to new cultures. I also take pride in inspiring students to have higher expectations for themselves and preparing them for success in college and future careers.
