Jazz Jordan is a Black, trans, elementary teacher in Baltimore City who is motivated by Black bodies manifesting and affirming their greatness, joy, and power. Growing up the oldest of 5 children in PG County, Maryland, Jazz saw the importance of ensuring all perspectives are considered in conversations. With awards in engineering, a BA in Social Psychology from the University of Maryland, and an MS in Elementary Education from Johns Hopkins University, his primary focus revolves around Black and Brown minds becoming confident in math and science.
When not in the classroom, he is somewhere creating visual art, building and coding robots, or laughing with family and friends.
