Meet The Team: Deion Jordan, English Teacher

Mr. Jordan, English Teacher

Mr. Jordan spends much of his time pondering big ideas. If Mr. Jordan is not at work or deconstructing theories of knowledge, he is either reading at home, jogging downtown or exploring the Memphis area on a Bird scooter.

Mr. Jordan is happy to be at Crosstown High because of the unique opportunity to engage with students and peers through project-based learning. “It is sure to be an exciting year to teach in this rigorous and exhilarating environment,” he says.

Whether it’s his love of philosophy or his extensive scholarly article collection, Mr. Jordan is excited to share his love of learning with Crosstown’s students. His advice to students is to study philosophy, always learn, and be critical, for it is (as he quotes John Stuart Mill), “... better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied.”
