Hi! I am Mrs. Yocum. I have been teaching here at Jordahl for 20 years, all in the fifth grade. Teaching your children and having three of my own children is a true blessing. My oldest daughter is a graduate of Fountain Fort Carson High School, my middle daughter is a junior at Fountain Fort Carson High School, and my son is on his way to Fountain Fort Carson High School as a freshman. I am very proud that all of my children have attended Jordahl, kindergarten through fifth grade. This is a very special place to myself and my family. My husband and I will be celebrating our 28 year anniversary this September. He is employed at Petersen AFB as a civil engineer. As you can see, learning is very important to our family.
I hope to be a person that your child can trust. Building positive relationships is the key to a child learning. I try to spend a little bit of time each day getting to know your child. I am looking forward to a great start. I encourage them to share good things and every morning I shake their hand and ask them how they are doing. I do love my job. The kids are the best part. Please know that you may contact me with any concerns or questions. I look forward to a fabulous year.
