• I am Jordan Mathiasen, the social studies teacher and a case manager at Riverwoods School in the Saint Cloud School District. I am looking forward to a great school year and want to introduce myself to you. 

    I was raised in Saint Cloud and I am a product of District 742, graduating from Apollo in 2008. While growing up I was very involved in sports, including baseball, football, and hockey. At Apollo, I played football and baseball. 

    After graduating from Apollo, I attended Saint John’s University and played football for the Johnnies for two years. While at Saint John’s I majored in Social Studies education and minored in history, coaching, and secondary education. I graduated from Saint John’s in 2012 and immediately started working towards a masters degree in special education by attending Concordia-St. Paul University. I have attained a masters degree in special education with teaching licenses in Emotional Behavior Disorders (EBD) and Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD). 

    The 2021-2022 school year will be my ninth school year as a teacher. I taught social studies for a year at Apollo, then taught special education at Tech and ALC-McKinley for one year. I then taught special education for four years at Maple Lake High School. This school year will be my third at Riverwoods. I have coached football at Apollo for 11 years and also coach baseball. I am excited to be teaching in District 742 and to be part of a school district that provides a multitude of opportunities for its students!

    If you have any questions, concerns, or information to share, please do not hesitate to contact me at (320)370-6909 or by email at jordan.mathiasen@isd742.org. The best time to contact me by phone is during my prep period on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1:35-3:15 or on Fridays.

    Sincerely,

    Jordan Mathiasen
