Mrs. Amy Garrett

The 2021-2022 school year marks my 14th year in the classroom and my 6th year here at Swansboro Middle.  I was born and raised in Durham, NC, and I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2005 with a degree in middle grades education.  I am certified to teach both ELA and math.   My husband also works for OCS in the technology department.  We are blessed with a ten-year-old son and a nine-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.  

Please feel free to reach out to me at any time.  Email is the best way to contact me. For more class information and resources, please visit Microsoft Teams.  Please also note that all parent/teacher conferences are scheduled through the main office. If you would like to schedule a conference, please call (910) 326-3601 and speak to our receptionist.
