Kristi Swaim » Bio


Welcome.  My name is Kristi Swaim.  I am a Reading Recovery teacher, as well as, a small group reading intervention teacher. I began my teaching career in 1994 and graduated from the University of Texas at the Permian Basin. I have spent most of my career teaching 1st graders.  I love being a Reading Recovery Teacher.  I am so excited and blessed to work closely with the first grade readers who need more focused reading instruction.  I try to meet each child's needs and help them grow as readers.  I hope every child leaves my room with a love for reading and the confidence to give it their all.
