Jordan Taitingfong, M.Ed.

Education Specialist, jordant@uw.edu

Jordan Taitingfong is a passionate advocate for access to high quality equitable education for all children. She earned her Master’s degree in Special Education at the University of Washington and worked as a dually certified Early Educator in inclusive classrooms for over a decade. Jordan had many experiences with exclusion both in her own education and while advocating for students with disabilities. She became particularly interested in how adults can best serve children of color with disabilities- a group of children significantly disadvantaged by our current education system. She now works at the Haring Center at the University of Washington providing professional development on inclusion, individualization, and behavior. She also works with children and adults on anti-bias and anti-racist education. As a lifelong learner, Jordan believes that we all take turns learning and teaching and she is excited to continue to do both in the future.
