Ms. Swift

I have taught English as a Second Language for twelve years, nine of those in Orange. I love teaching ESL. It is wonderful to be able to help students overcome linguistic obsticles to reach their full potential.

I have a B.A. in English from Montclair State University, an M.A. in Communication from William Paterson University and am certified to teach English and English as a Second Language in grades K-12.

My first career was in theater as an actress/singer/dancer who also worked in every area of technical theater. I started as a teenager and left when I became a mother. I started teaching, but was sidlined into Corporate Human Resources for a Fortune 500 company. As soon as I was able, I returned to teaching and have been enjoying my ESL students ever since.
