Dale Jordan

Children’s Author and Literacy Advocate

Ms. Jordan has been an avid reader all her life. Her love of reading had precipitated habits of reading to her children and grandchildren since they were infants, and throughout their early elementary school grades. This has been one of the highlights of her life. Now, one of her goals is to instill the love of reading into young children through her books, which inspire and motivate children to be the best they can be, while they learn at the same time. She has published three children’s books and is working on the fourth. She plans to continue writing children’s books and to eventually write a family history book. In addition, she enjoys swimming and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.


Education and Association

Ms. Jordan has a BA in English from Christopher Newport University, a MEd in Elementary Education from Cambridge College, a MEd in Reading from Liberty University, and a MEd in English as a Second Language from Regent University. She has been a longtime member of the International Literacy Association, which keeps her informed and up to date with best teaching practices.

Power In Literacy

Eradicating Illiteracy in Our Communities

As the Founder of the non-profit-“Power In Literacy”, Ms. Jordan’s goal is to help eradicate illiteracy. She does this by tutoring children and adults, and by holding literacy awareness activities. “Power in Literacy” was created from the realization that many adults can barely read at a functional level. Ms. Jordan wants to do her part by helping to combat the illiteracy problem, even if only in a small way.
