Boston Collegiate Charter School, Paraprofessional

Jordan Felisbret was born in Abilene, Texas and raised in a military family. His early years were spent in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba before relocating to Virginia Beach, Virginia. In Virginia Beach, Jordan became very active in performing arts. He also enjoyed serving the community by assisting a food pantry at a local church, organizing food and leading musical worship. Jordan attributes these experiences, as well as receiving his early education in public schools with diverse teachers and students, to the importance he continues to place on community involvement and diversity.

Jordan graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2009 with a B.M. in Professional Music. Jordan has served five years at a local church in Brookline, MA, responsible for leading all aspects of musical worship and a member of the church leadership council. As an integral part of the church community, this helped to shape him as a servant-leader.

Jordan is currently a Paraprofessional at Boston Collegiate Charter School where he facilitates a group for social-emotional development in conjunction with the PEAR Institute and teaches music after school to 5th and 6th grade students. Jordan has sought to encourage student leadership by organizing young civil rights leaders from the NAACP NextGen Leadership Program to share their leadership experience with students and continues to seek opportunities that allow students to see themselves in leadership positions.
