A Message From Our Educational Specialist

My name is Jordan Thomas and I am serving as Education Specialist at Red River United.  I have teaching experience in both Caddo and DeSoto Parishes, and I also hold a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership.  My role at Red River United will focus on planning and implementing professional learning based on the specific needs of public educators as well as engaging members to become the voice of Red River United.

Too often teachers, especially new teachers, lack the support and guidance they need to reach their full potential.  It is my mission to provide the support teachers need to not only survive in this ever-changing public education system but to flourish and thrive.

I truly look forward to serving the teachers of Northwest Louisiana, and I hope to see you soon!
