Mrs. Susan Swearengin
Hi! My name is Susan Swearengin. I spent my early years in Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin and graduated from high school in Seymour. After graduating from SMS (MSU now) with a degree in Animal Science I farmed and raised dogs and worked in the area (Emerson, Rawlings, Baxter) for several years before going back to college and getting certified in Elementary Education. I began my career in education here in 1990 as a Reading Improvement Aide. I worked with 1st through 6th grade students for five years and then switched and was an aide in kindergarten and first grade for a year before beginning teaching in 1996. This is my 23nd year teaching second grade here at Gainesville Elementary and a total of 29 years here. I have been married for 31 years to Dan Swearengin. We have one daughter, Emily, who is married and lives in West Plains. We are new grandparents, with a grandaughter, Gabriella who is 18 months old. I enjoy gardening, being outside, reading, sewing and playing with Gabby!
