• I am so happy to work with my new group of first graders!  We plan on learning a lot and having fun this year!  I'd like to share a little bit about myself!
    Mrs. Swider
    I love teaching first grade! I grew up in a family of educators and I played school as a child. I have been working at MES since it opened in 1998. I graduated from East Carolina University. I enjoy shopping, reading, and spending time with my family. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Tim, for 32 years. We have 2 great daughters. They are both  teachers! Brit teaches elementary art in Charlotte and Katherine teaches first grade in Raleigh. We have a Boston Terrier named Mady, a cat named Gracie, and a snake.
