Who Dat? #4


Paige Duke, Co/ Copy Editor

Have you ever walked the halls of our lovely school, passed a random adult that you don’t know, and wondered who the heck they are?  You probably think, “Whatever, she’s probably a librarian or something,” or “Must be a substitute.”  Teachers who teach English, math, or other required curriculums are the most well-known because, well, everyone has probably had them at least once in their academic career.  We are a small school, and I think it’s important to put a spotlight on educators who work just as hard as the rest of the staff but don’t teach a core subject.  I didn’t know who they were at first, but now I do.

What is Your Name?

Ms. Swarles

What is your Job Title, and what does it entail?

I am a building sub for the middle school. I come in and wherever they need a substitute in I go. I like teaching in the high school better because I used to student teach there and I just like older ages.

How long have you been at Knoch?

This is my first year substituting here but I student taught and went here.

What do you like most about your job?

I like being able to experience a classroom. i student taught online so this is a bit different. I like being challenged because my degree is in art and I can be put in a science classroom or something else.

What is your least favorite part of your job?

When kids give me grief or I have to yell at them to get them together. I don’t like yelling.

What’s a fun fact about yourself?

I have a twin and my little sister is in the middle school.
