Mrs. Amy Swanner
I teach 6th grade Honors Reading and 6th grade Reading at Murphy Middle School. I am married (husband Andy) with 3 children, (Kate-Senior at Baylor, Caroline-Junior at Baylor and Preston-12th grade at PESH). All 3 of my kids have attended Hunt, Murphy, McMillen and Plano East. In addition to teaching, I enjoy family time, making memories, traveling, music, sports and pushing myself to learn new things! (Taught myself how to make wedding cakes and owned my own cake business for awhile!) I'm a Dallas girl. I was born and raised in Dallas and attended Hockaday and Trinity Christian Academy before heading off to Baylor for college. Go BEARS!
I began teaching in 1995 at Dooley Elementary (Plano ISD). When I married Andy in 1998, we moved to Jackson, MS where I taught at Jackson Academy. After 8 years in Mississippi, my family moved to Murphy, Texas in 2005. I then took time off from teaching until my 3 children were school age. Since then, I have taught at Hunt Elementary and MMS. I have been fortunate enough to teach 1st, 3rd and 5th grades along with 6th grade math, 6th grade honor's math, 7th grade math and 7th grade honor's math over the past 25 years.
Please feel free to contact me by email or phone if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for entrusting me to teach your precious children!
