Maia Yordanov for school board

Vote Maia for

Jefferson Parish School Board District 2


Welcome, neighbors!

I'm Maia, and I'm running for the 2022 Jefferson Parish School Board Election.

As a former teacher and proud mom to Jefferson Parish students, I believe that excellency in education can transform and rejuvenate a community. I have multifaceted business experience and a history of service to our community.

I will work hard to restore values and morals to our younger generation. Our new school board will focus on preparing students for a life of success, while providing a driven, moral education to all students.



Jefferson Parish schools have fallen behind in math and science, today's most important fields. My platform emphasizes STEM while also encouraging arts and other critical skills.


Our students thrive when their home and school lives are in harmony. I will ensure communication, respect and support for both, parents and teachers.


School is a place for our children to learn, not fall victim to divisive politics or agendas. We need to take politics out of the classroom and bring respect, ethics and wholesome values back in.
