Mr. Jordan is beginning his first year at Midway Middle School this fall with eight years of teaching experience. In May of 2013 he received a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from East Carolina University. Mr. Jordan is coming to Midway Middle School after being the band director at Clinton High School in Clinton, NC for six years. During his tenure at CHS the band consistently received superior and excellent ratings in North Carolina and Virginia. Each year Mr. Jordan's students earned placements in the Sampson County All-County Band, the Southeastern District All-District Band, the North Carolina All-State Honors Band, and the Governor's School of North Carolina (instrumental music). Under his direction the marching band at CHS was chosen to perform in the Disney Magic Music Days Parade in December of 2018 at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Mr. Jordan is ecstatic to be the new band director at Midway Middle School where he's looking forward to introducing many young musicians to the incredible world of band. Mr. Jordan works closely with Mr. Tew and Mr. Shelton at Midway High School as the Color Guard Director.
