Mrs. Marissa Swift

6th Grade Language Arts

 My name is Marissa Swift, and I am very excited to be a part of the Lincoln Academy 5th/6th Language Arts team. I was born and raised in Ohio. I earned my undergraduate and graduate degree in elementary education for The Ohio State University. Go Bucks! I have taught in Georgia, Tenessee, and Colorado. This will be my 13 year teaching, and the bulk of my teaching career has been in Colorado. I am so excited to get back into the classroom!  I took off 2 years with the birth of my second son, and it was a very convenient 2 years to be away. My family means the world to me, and I am so fortunate to have such a supportive family.  I chose to come to Lincoln professionally and as a parent because of the incredible community. I choose to teach because I believe I can help students learn how to independently think, analyze, and reason while seeing the need for strong character in our society. That is what I hope we all learn and discover throughout this year.
