Hi! My name is Jordan Taper. I’m a Junior (third year student) at UW-Milwaukee as an Education major. I want to teach Middle School English. Since High School, I have loved writing. During that time, as well as my first two years in college, I wrote songs in a lot of different music genres: Pop, Rock, and Country. I consider myself obsessed with music, and when I become a teacher, I want to incorporate it as much as I can into my lessons. Also in my second year of college, I took a Creative Writing class and wrote my own short story. Last year, I took a Teaching class and had field experience at Maryland Avenue Montessori School. It was a fantastic school with a friendly community and strong relationship between teachers and students, as well as a focus on independent work. I would recommend anyone to go and visit there. I look forward to working with all of you and I know this will give me practice on how to be a great teacher. Thanks!
