The Social Studies Team
Our Social Studies teachers at Swann are the definition of teamwork! Ms. Murphrey recently moved from 7th grade to 6th grade Social Studies, and our 8th grade teachers Mr. Porter and Ms. Shivers have stepped in to teach 7th grade social studies as well as their 8th grade classes. They are joined by Mr. Cunningham who is also teaching one of the 7th grade classes while we continue searching for a high-quality candidate for this position. Thank you to these awesome educators for all their work ensuring our Lions get the education they deserve!
