Learn Something About Me

    Hello! I am Ms. Swygard (s-why-guard). I graduated from Southeastern University (go to college, kids! It was the best four years of my life!). I majored in English and finished with three minors: secondary English education, Bible, and religion. I have taught in Costa Rica for three summers, co-taught an American lit course at SEU (practicum), and have taught for three years (11th and 12th grade English at WHHS & 10th & 11th grade English at McKeel the last 2 years). I am excited to teach 10th and 11th ELA again going into my fourth year of teaching!

    When I am not lesson planning, teaching, and grading, I love kayaking, picnicking, and hanging out with my favorite youth group kids at Oasis Community Church. I have a passion for foster kids, a knack for scrapbooking, and a twin sister to enjoy it all with me. Best of all, I love connecting with others (with cultures, feelings, wants, hurts, other perspectives) and finding myself too--reading literature helps me to do that, and writing helps to liberate my thoughts, enabling them to reach deeper, to seek truth, and to explore possibilities. I cannot wait to learn along with you this year.
