Season 2, Episode 30: Coronavirus Week 11 - 9th Grade Assistant Principal Jordan Fortier

There is no way that 9th Grade Assistant Principal Jordan Fortier could have envisioned his first year as the freshmen-level principal finishing the way that it has. But it has created a moment that our students will not soon forget and will impact their remaining years here at Emmaus High School.

During this conversation, Fortier discusses how his 9th grade year, which included some personal challenges, helped to guide him into a career in education and gave him a perspective about how important the social/emotional learning perspective is in his job.  He also shares what he would like to see a 9th grade student look like at the end of the year and encourages them to not let anyone else write their story.

At the end of the episode, Fortier shares what upcoming 9th graders can do to prepare themselves for next school year, no matter what school looks like.
