Sharen Swagerty, 6th Grade Language Arts/Social Studies

Clinger/Swagerty Team

I have been a teacher in Jenks since 1991 and have loved every moment of my teaching experience here.

I have also taught English and Social Studies in Kansas, Georgia, and New Jersey. I began teaching high school journalism and sponsoring the high school's newspaper in 1975. 

Next I taught English and Science to seventh graders in Georgia. After having taught all ages from seventh graders to seniors for ten years, I switched to teaching New Jersey fifth graders. I was fulfilling my dream of teaching most every grade level. Knowing I would want to teach kids of all ages, I earned my undergraduate degree in secondary education and my masters degree in elementary education. I began teaching math and science here at JEI in 2001. Now I have come full circle. After teaching English my first 24 years, I am again teaching language arts. My undergraduate degree is in Social Studies, and I am now once again teaching social studies along with language arts.

Providing myself new challenges keeps me fresh and energetic. Teaching eleven and twelve-year-olds keeps me young. I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I was in the sixth grade and never deviated from that goal because teaching children is what I was created to do.
