Hello! My name is Jordan Blank, and I am a Minnesota Reading Corps Literacy Tutor for the 2016-17 school year! I am excited to be at Kenny and to work (primarily) with the first grade students.

I am originally from a small town in north central Iowa, though I've also lived in Texas and Illinois. This past May, I graduated magna cum laude from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, with a BA degree in English Secondary Education and Classics. I hold a teaching license in the state of Iowa. I joined Reading Corps to stay involved in education and to help kids succeed at reading, an activity that I have always enjoyed. 
 
Some of my hobbies include reading, walking, knitting and crocheting, running, and tumbling. Other interests include Harry Potter, Doctor Who, John Green novels, random Broadway musicals, and the Canterbury Tales. I look forward to sharing my interests with Kenny students and learning what their interests are as I help them become better readers through Reading Corps!
