Jordan was the director of the Eisentrager-Howard Gallery at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and currently works with the Arts Commission in Toledo, Ohio.
Jordan’s interest in both becoming an artist and teaching art came during her time as a student at Interlochen Center for the Arts. She attended the summer camp as a teenager, returned as a teaching assistant in college, and then joined the faculty upon completing graduate school. At Interlochen, Jordan found a dynamic exchange of knowledge and techniques, along with encouragement of critical thinking skills. All continue to be a part of her teaching practice.
As a teaching artist, Jordan sees her role as nurturing creativity and challenging students to new levels of achievement. She has found great satisfaction witnessing students combine creative thinking with the acquisition of new artistic techniques and skills.
