Mrs. Swaringer

Hello!  My name is Joannie Swaringer.  I am a Reading Recovery teacher at Carver Elementary Magnet School.  I have a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of South Carolina and a Masters in Elementary Education from Francis Marion University.  I received formal training in Reading Recovery in 2001-2002. 

I teach students to develop reading and writing strategies that enable them to be successful in the classroom.  In my years of teaching, I've learned to begin where the child is, work from his/her strengths and build upon them.  All children are capable of learning, and it’s exciting when students begin to think of themselves as readers and writers.
