Carrie Jordan's class photos run the length of Normandy Elementary's gym wall. Every year from 1995 to 2016, 25 or so students surrounded their teacher in each photo. And while the fashion and hairstyles changed over those years, the smiles on their faces did not.
And, maybe today, those students don't remember the mathematics principles their teacher, "Miss Jordan," taught them. But, if nothing else, they likely do remember how she taught it — with fun games and a positive attitude.
