My name is Ora Gordon and this is my fifth year teaching at Jackson-Steele Elementary. I am 42 (soon to be 43) years with two children. My son, Perry Jo also known to many of my students as PJ is 24 years old and currently serving in the United States Army stationed in Germany. My daughter, Orianna, is 19 and is going into her Sophomore year at Tuskegee University majoring in Computer Science. I am the proud grandmother of Kamari, Nova, Layla, and Xia. I have two pitbulls, Blue and McKenzie. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and is pursuing my National Board Certifcation for Teachers. I love teaching and I hope that I continue to inspire students to reach their fullest potential in edcuation. To all my students remember to "Think Outside the Box!"
"The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth." ~Dan Rather~
