About the Teacher/Welcome Msg
Welcome to Mrs. Swift’s class!
Please check your binders for the newsletter!
I went to the University of Mississippi where I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.
Before I went back to college, I worked as a Special Education assistant with the Shelby County School system. I was placed in a functional skills classroom for three years at E.A. Harrold Elementary school in Millington, TN. When we moved back to DeSoto county in 2009, I began working as a kindergarten assistant at DeSoto Primary School. After two more years as an assistant, I returned to college to obtain my degree in Elementary Education. I taught K - inclusion at DCPS for two years. I have moved to second grade this year.
In addition to being a teacher, I am also a wife and mother. My husband and I have been married for 22 years and have four children, one who is in school at Gould's Academy, two at Lewisburg High School, and one at Lewisburg Middle School. We are a very active family. My children play volleyball and softball at Lewisburg High School and for competitive teams on the weekends. My son plays football and runs track at Lewisburg Middle.
