Congratulations to Charles Jordan, who recently retired from Moorhead Area Public Schools. He spent his last four years as a paraprofessional at Horizon Middle School West and Spud Academy. Charles said, "I arrived at Moorhead Schools in the sunset of my career, but it has been a very good place to finish up my 32 years of teaching and paraprofessional work." His favorite memories were trips to the Fergus Falls outdoor nature preserve, special events in the classroom and helping teachers. In retirement, Charles is excited to travel around the US and abroad and spend time at his family's cabin in Wisconsin.
