I have been a teacher for 23 years with the last 6 at Rockdale High School, where I enjoy the complexity of educating today's youth. My husband, Ken Swiech, is also employed at RISD as the technology director. I am a proud graduate of Lufkin High School, Angelina College, and Stephen F. Austin State University. I have earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Education with a minor in mathematics. I believe that all students can learn, and I strive to encourage students to expand their knowledge.
