Mrs. Amy Garrett
The 2020-2021 school year marks my 13th year in the classroom and my 5th year here at Swansboro Middle. I'm a graduate of Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. In 2005, I earned a Bachelor of Science in middle grades education with concentrations in both ELA and math. I grew up about three hours west, in Durham, NC. My husband also works for OCS in the technology department. We are blessed with a nine-year-old son and an eight-year-old daughter. When I'm not teaching, I love to spend time with my family, participate in activities at my church, read, cook, travel, and watch Duke basketball.
In addition to teaching ELA, I also hold several leadership positions here at SBMS. I'm the 8th grade team leader, an ELA data team leader, a member of our school's leadership team, and a mentor to beginning teachers. This year, I am also honored to be the SBMS 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year, and in 2019, I was recognized as Onslow County Schools' Literacy Teacher of the Year.
