Jordan Sisson was nominated by a family member, Kerry Jung
Ms. Sisson creates a safe space for seventh graders to solve problems. She's a math teacher whose work was recognized when she was awarded the 2019 SPARK award for innovation in the classroom by the Wausau School Foundation. However, her impact on her students far surpasses the curriculum. It may best be expressed in the words of her students, who send her thank you cards for talking to them about their mental health and openly supporting the LGBTQ community. This becomes even more impressive when you learn she has only been teaching since 2015. Ms. Sisson is an extraordinary young teacher making a difference far beyond her subject matter. For the students who flourish in the safe space she creates, she is indeed a LifeChanger.
