Mrs. Swisher's Class

Welcome to 4th grade at Waddell Elementary School! This is my seventh year teaching at Waddell and my third year teaching fourth grade. I am excited to continue working at a school with such wonderful and curious students. I can't wait to see what this year will bring!

I live just outside of Lexington on a lane that shares my last name.  I live there with my husband, Ben, and my three children, Kirk, Madeline, and Stuart. Kirk is the eldest and is in the 7th grade at Lylburn Downing Middle School.  Madeline is in 4th grade at Waddell this year. Stuart is just a baby is just learning the basics - crawling, walking, and talking!

I went to college at James Madison University where I earned my B.A. in Speech Communication (Public Relations).  Eight years later, I decided that I needed to switch careers.  I then began my studies at the University of Virginia where I earned my PreK-6 teaching certification.  I continued school and soon after was graduated from the University of Virginia with my Master's in Elementary Education (M.Ed.). 

(For all the students that want to know how old I am, I was born in 1979.  See if you can do the math and figure it out!)
