Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Madeline Swanson
I’m an Academic Mastery teacher at Harker-Wylie with 13 years of experience in public school. I have spent the last three years at this elementary school developing my skills to teach literacy and Math to struggling students from kindergarten through second grade.
Before this, I taught high school, middle school and upper elementary school as an English and Academic Mastery teacher. I am dually certified as an English and elementary school teacher. My degree is from Queens College, NY.
I enjoy reading, gardening, movies, and TENNIS (this is big in my world). Teaching students between k – 2 is a delight! I look forward to coming in every day. These pupils are excited to learn and I feel the same about teaching them. I want to inspire them to love learning. William Butler Yeats expresses my attitude the best with his quote, “Education is not the filing of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
