About Sara Jordan
Sara Jordan began composing music to boost literacy and numeracy in 1990.
As a Special Education teacher at an inner-city Toronto vocational school, she struggled to find ways to teach students labeled as learning disabled, dyslexic, or ‘at risk’ to read, write and perform basic math.
Inspired, Sara sat down at her keyboard and began composing ‘songs that teach’. Her first recording, The 3R Rap, was nominated for the prestigious Grawemeyer Award in Education by the University of Louisville for innovation with a potential for worldwide impact. To this day, The 3R Rap remains a popular catalog title.
During the infancy of her newly founded company – Jordan Music Productions Inc., operating as Sara Jordan Publishing – Sara, a single mother of two, was still working days as a teacher. In 1997, Sara resigned from her teaching job to pour all of her energy into her business.
Sara Jordan Publishing has produced an impressive array of award-winning educational programs. Over 60 educational audio programs and resource books teach Math, Phonics, Health and Social Studies. Due to worldwide requests from parents and teachers alike, most of her titles are now available in English, Spanish and French.
She shares teaching tips and free song downloads with over 50,000 parents and teachers around the world over the Internet. These are especially appreciated in third world countries, where teachers cannot afford to buy the material for their classes. Sara’s newsletters are sent both in English and Spanish. Sara Jordan Publishing actively maintains two websites: SongsThatTeach.com and AprendeCantando.com. Many of her educational songs have now been digitized and are being actively sold over the Internet as downloads.
Sara holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of North Texas and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto. She is a member of the Ontario College of Teachers, the Association of Canadian Publishers and SOCAN (Society of Composers, Authors, and Music Publishers of Canada). She has been honored as one of ‘Ten Top Teachers’ by Canadian Living Magazine and has won numerous Parents’ Choice and Directors’ Choice Awards for her innovative musical programs. She now sells CDs and resource books directly to seventeen countries around the world.
