SCCSD Teacher of the Year Named Top Five Finalist at State Level


Susan Jordan, a second-grade teacher at Morningside Elementary and recipient of the 2018 Sioux City Community School District (SCCSD) Teacher of the Year Award, has been named a top five finalist for the Iowa Teacher of the Year Award.

Susan will be attending a luncheon celebrating Teachers of the Year from around the state on Jan. 26, as well as an educator’s forum the following week. As an honoree, Susan will continue to serve as an ambassador to education and act as liaison to schools, higher education, and organizations across the state.

The Iowa Teacher of the Year Award is sponsored by the Iowa Department of Education through an appropriation from the Iowa legislature. The award provides an opportunity to recognize an Iowa teacher who motivates, challenges, and inspires excellence, who is respected by students and peers, and who is an exceptional teacher helping to redefine American education.
