Ms. Betsy Swann


I began my education career here at Jenkins in August of 2000 as a Kindergarten assistant.  I recognized my desire to have my own classroom at that time and attended Lenoir Rhyne College (University) as an evening student.  During the 2007-2008 school year, I fulfilled my requirement of student teaching in Third Grade at another school within Hickory Public Schools and graduated from LR with a B.S. in Elementary Education in May 2008.  In the fall of 2008 I was blessed to return to my Jenkins family as a third grade teacher. Over the last few years I have fluctuated between the third and fourth grades. I was honored to be selected as the Teacher of the Year for 2012-13 for Hickory Public Schools. 
This year I am excited to be teaching fourth grade class and am looking forward to an awesome year!
