About Swinton

I graduated from the University of Sierra Leone with a Division 1 BS degree in Agriculture. For a couple of years I was employed as Research Assistant in the Department of Soil Science at Njala University College, University of Sierra Leone, following which I traveled to Germany, on scholarship, for graduate studies. Within a year of my arrival in Germany, I received an offer of a Graduate Assistantship in Agronomy at the Pennsylvania State Univeristy, State College, PA. Due to budgetary constraint, I was unable to complete my MS program and left to join the work force. I moved to the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan area and worked in the retail industry for several years.

I moved to the Atlanta, GA, area in late 2005 and stayed there for a year before moving to California, where I now live. Having always considered myself a teacher, I went back to school, Calstate San Bernardino, and acquired a single subject teaching credential in Mathematics. I am currently a math teacher with the Alamance-Burlington School System.

My mission as a teacher will be to strive to ensure that all students feel safe and secure with me, and to use every resource at my disposal to guide them toward their full potential: a goal we will achieve together through the process of inquiry, learning, mastery of material, and problem-solving. My core values include the fact that I believe that one must always honor and respect those who come after him, I believe that it takes a village to raise a child, I believe that the unexamined life is not worth living, and I believe in giving every student the tools and opportunity of knowledge, so they are able to examine their own life.

My purpose as a teacher is to spark curiosity in, to motivate, and to educate all students to the best of my ability, and my philosophy toward learning is that a candle loses nothing if it is used to light another one.
