Dr. Hamlin’s Reflection for Sunday, Aug. 23, 2015.
Mrs. Leola Jordan, Teacher
(With daughters, including my high school class and bandmate, Lynn – far right)
George Washington Carver Elementary School
I have always had a great respect for teachers, especially all my teachers, from kindergarten in Bridgeton, New Jersey to graduate school in Rochester, New York and Dayton, Ohio. The first teacher that I recognize as being significantly important in my life was my first grade teacher, Mrs. Leola Jordan, at G.W. Carver Elementary School in Macon, Georgia.
I vividly remember Mrs. Jordan being a very beautiful woman, as she continues to be today. As a teacher, she was firm, demanding, and expected her students to learn. Her children were my age and the ages of my brothers and sisters, some of whom Mrs. Jordan also taught. In the 1960's, it was unique that teachers taught for many years often in the same school and thereby had a personal relationship with families who matriculated through the school. Mrs. Jordan taught several generations of my family before leaving Carver School and eventually retiring.
