Education is a HOT topic here in Acworth these days! With State and Federal budgets being tight, our schools and teachers and students are the real stars today doing the amazing things they do with what they have. And are we lucky with the educators that we have here in our area!
I am Jane Swanson and will be looking for the wonderful things that are going on in the schools in our area. From Kindergarteners to graduating Seniors, let me know what is happening in your school. Did someone win the Spelling Bee? Who got a scholarship? Did the team win the championship? What is going on in your PTA? Does your building have new administration? What is special about your teacher? Let me know!
Teachers, parents, administrators, staff members, citizens, ANYONE! I want to hear from you! What topics do you want to see in an Examiner article? Let me know and I will research and report!
A little about me….I was born and raised in Peoria, Illinois. I graduated with a B.S. in Elementary Education and a Masters of Education from Illinois State University. I taught elementary school in Bloomington, Illinois for 10 years before moving to South Bend, Indiana. I taught Pre-K there before moving to the Chicago suburbs with yet another transfer of my husband’s job. After 6 years in the cold northern ‘burbs, the South was calling our name, yet with another transfer, and we ended up here in Acworth 9 years ago! I’d like to think we’ll die many years from now here in Acworth….that’s the plan at least!
An active volunteer for the past 20 years, I have sat on 3 PTO Boards and 4 PTA Boards as a teacher or parent. I’ve been the room mom, committee member, Sunday School teacher and local small business member. The best job I’ve had though is being Mom to Betsy and Billy and wife to Bill!
Please write to me and let me know what YOU want to see here! I will be writing 2 – 3 days per week so check here and check often!
