B.S. in Elementary Education
Mrs. Shelby Swartout
Welcome to a fun-filled year in 5th grade! I graduated from TN Tech University with a degree in Elementary Education, and this will be my 10th year teaching. I spent a large portion of my career teaching 5th grade ELA and Social Studies outside of Knoxville, TN, and I taught 3rd grade in Memphis, TN for the last two years. My husband, Thomas, and I recently moved here to Charlotte with our two dogs, Cali and Logan. I can’t wait to read you lots of great stories, debate over which Avenger is the best (Of course, it's Captain America!), tell you all about the crazy things our dogs do and show you the pumpkins that I am growing. Most importantly, I can't wait to grow and learn with you. I know we will have so much fun together!
