• About Me

    Greetings! My name is Carrie Swing and I have the privilege of teaching English at Atkins Academic and Technology High School. While I love my subject matter, I also enjoy solving math problems and absorbing history. I have four children – three sons and a daughter – and two dogs. I am a rabid Wake Forest fan (class of '85) and my classroom is decorated with lots of gold and black and …. books!

    My favorite book of all time is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I love teaching poetry and reading the "classics"! I think it is very important to spell words correctly and know how to express ideas clearly and concisely, both in writing and verbally. Much will happen in my English classes this year so be prepared and organized for each and every class!
