The South Carolina Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (SCASCD) has named its 2018 class of Emerging Leaders, and one of Berkeley County School District’s educators is among them. 

St. Stephen Elementary Reading Coach Jordan Hudson was identified by the organization a person teacher who is “passionate and committed to the whole child.” Believing in a whole child approach is believing that things like health, safety and support play a crucial role in education. 

In addition to being the only teacher honored by SCASCD in Berkeley County, Mrs. Hudson is also the only teacher representing the Lowcountry of South Carolina. 

“I am honored to have been selected as one of South Carolina ASCD's Emerging Leaders for the Class of 2018,” Mrs. Hudson said. “I am looking forward to working with this elite group of educators from across the Palmetto State as we learn from each other and grow together.” 

St. Stephen Elementary Principal Elaine Graham describes Mrs. Hudson as a true leader. 

“There are teachers that are good and there are those that I feel are called to the profession,” she said.  “Jordan is called to the profession of teaching.  She understands the importance of relationships, empowering staff and pupils and shows great empathy for everyone in our school setting.  She goes above and beyond the requirements of an Emerging Leader.  She is truly a leader in her field.”
