Mrs. Sweatt - AIG

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Sweatt


 I live in Kannapolis, and I am proud to be teaching in Kannapolis City Schools where I received the majority of my education.  I am married and have two boys in KCS.  I have been teaching since 1991, and the have been in KCS teaching AIG since 2001.  I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, walking, yoga, watching movies, and reading non-fiction.

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
 I attended Appalachian State University and UNC Charlotte and graduated with a B. A. in English and a Minor in dance. I also received an Elementary Education Teaching Certificate for K-6 and an add-on license for AIG K-12. 

 Educational Philosophy/Vision:  The object of teaching a child is to enable the child to get along without the teacher.  We are 21st century learners striving to be responsible, respectful citizens.

This is my Schedule for the 2018-2019 School Year:

Monday - G. W. Carver Elementary School
Tuesday - Jackson Park Elementary School
Wednesday - Fred L. Wilson Elementary School
Thursday - Forest Park Elementary School
Friday - Shady Brook and Woodrow Wilson Elementary Schools

I am teaching our new PETS (Primary Education Thinking Skills) curriculum in all 1st - 3rd grade elementary school classrooms.  These lessons are whole-class lessons and focus on critical thinking skills.  These assessments, along with other data, will be used to place students in to small groups for additional lessons during 2nd quarter.  These groups are flexible and may change throughout the year.

4th and 5th graders are in a pull-out setting. They are working on social-emotional lessons during 1st quarter and will then start our PBL (Project Based Learning) curriculum beginning in 2nd quarter.  These will continue throughout the year along with other activities.

Reading each night and practicing math facts is very important to your child's foundation skills.  Students can also practice writing at home.  For example, have your child write a short summary about what they read each day or have them keep their own personal journal or diary.  They can even watch an educational video or TV program and then write down what they learned!

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about our AIG program.  It is best to reach me by email since I work at different schools.  Or, you can reach me by calling a specific school on the day that I am there.  Also, I love to have guest speakers or volunteers if any parents or anyone you know of has something to contribute!  Thank you for your support of our AIG activities!
