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 for over 25 years, and the last 16 years have been in KCS teaching AIG.  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:
School Day
Woodrow Wilson Elementary Monday
G. W. Carver Elementary
Fred L. Wilson Elementary
Shady Brook Elementary Thursday
Forest Park Elementary Friday

Welcome back to a new school year!  Let's make it fabulous!  j

Parents, by now you should have received AIG paperwork for your child(ren) - either a Differentiated Education Plan (DEP) or a Nurturing Form.  Please check, sign, and return these as soon as possible.  Thank you!

The students really had fun writing their stories for the Young Author's Contest, and I have enjoyed reading them!  Good luck to all participants!

We are now participating in Global Read Aloud (GRA).  K-2 students are reading various books by Australian author Mem Fox.  Third grade students are reading Fenway and Hattie, and 4th grade students are reading The Wild Robot.  These are texts that most of the students have not read before, so they are loving these stories!

Remember, students can 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!
