Centre Middle School fifth grade math teacher Jordyn Pollard has been selected as an Alabama Teacher of the Year “Sweet 16″ finalist. The “Sweet 16″ finalists have emerged from a group of over 130 exceptional educators from across the state who submitted applications for the Alabama Teacher of the Year Program. The pool will soon be narrowed to the “Final Four,” with the Alabama Teacher of the Year being announced on May 13, 2015.

Her parents are Ricky and Joan Pollard. She is a graduate of Cherokee County High School, holds a Bachelors in Elementary Education from Union University, and she has a Masters in Elementary Education from the University of Alabama.

While in college, Jordyn taught kindergarten through tenth grade for a summer in India. She believes that traveling to another country to teach confirmed her desire to teach and her desire to see education succeed throughout the world. Jordyn desires for her students to recognize the privilege of a free public education and realize their responsibility, not only as an American citizen, but as a global one.
