"Never stop being a good person because of bad people." -Jay Shetty 


Hey! My name is Heather Swirski and this will be my first official year at Northwoods Elementary. I came in mid year last year and am so excited to join the Northwoods family for another year! This will also be my first official year of teaching. I recently graduated from UNC Wilmington in December with my masters in Elementary Education. I received my bachelor's degree from The State University of New York at New Paltz in Sociology with a concentration in Criminology. I moved to North Carolina about two years ago from New York and just recently moved to Jacksonville this past January and have loved every moment of it! 

Outside of the classroom, you can find me either at the beach, curled up with a good book, or hanging at home with my boyfriend (when the Navy hasn't taken him away!) with our little tabby cat named Oliver. I love to cook, have classroom dance parties, and enjoy giving out hugs! I am SO excited for the new school year and I hope you are, too! 

Some of my favorites:

Color: Green, Yellow, Turquoise 

Food: Sushi 

Drink: Matcha green tea lattes! 

Sport: Football, go Seattle Seahawks! 

Subject: Science 

Flower: Sunflowers & Daisies 

Animal: As many students know, llamas, elephants, & raccoons!
