Rebecca Jordan
Rebecca Jordan has lived in Columbia, SC practically her entire life! She attended the University of South Carolina Honors College and currently teaches fifth grade at Satchel Ford Elementary. She and her husband, Hampton, have two daughters, Elizabeth Ann (6) and Caroline (3), as well as their golden retriever, Sugar. When not working, Rebecca enjoys writing (obviously), cooking, reading and running. Her children have taught her more about love, joy, sadness, strength, stress and letting go than she could have ever thought possible.
