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.

Please feel free to reach out to me at any time.  Email is the best way to contact me.  I try to respond to emails within 24 hours.
