5th Grade Team
Hello! My name is Jordan Kent and I am so excited to be teaching for my third year. I am a part of a military family and so thankful to have grown roots here at RMCA. I have been married to my husband for 8 years and am a mother to two beautiful girls who also attend RMCA. Together we love playing sports, hiking, camping, and doing all things outdoors. I believe that all kids are unique and each one of them has something wonderful to offer the world. I cannot wait to be your child's teacher and give them a great school year full of learning and fun!
My teaching philosophy is to first provide a safe and warm environment for my students to be in every day. I want them to feel loved, valued, and empowered to ask questions, make mistakes, and build relationships. Academic rigor paired with a commitment to the character development of our children sets them up for success, and the classical model is a beautifully effective way to achieve these goals. I love the classical model because we get to focus on the character, integrity, and whole person of our students as we prepare them for exciting and successful lives.
I encourage my students to ask questions, take risks and overcome the fear of making mistakes as this is part of the learning process. I love teaching and I really hope that I can invoke the same level of excitement with my students!
