Hey! My name is Brianna Swartz and this is my 5th year teaching at Parkway School. Last year I taught a 1st and 2nd grade combination class and I learned so much and grew as a teacher. However, I am excited to be back with one grade level and back in 1st grade!
I grew up in Boone, NC attending Cove Creek Elementary and Watauga High. After High School I moved to Wilmington, NC where I got my Bachelor's Degree at the University of North Carolina Wilmington in 2010. Then, I taught Kindergarten for 2 and a half years in Wilmington and eventually moved back to the High Country where I commuted to work in Wilkes County for 2 years. I taught 6th grade Science and Kindergarten there. After 2 years of communting, I was fortunate enough to have gotten my dream job at Parkway!
I love the fast paced learning that takes place in 1st grade and watching the kids become independent readers throughout the year! We are constantly doing new and exciting things with the kids and I love to watch them grow and learn right before my eyes. I look forward to this year and everything it has in store for us!
