Swope Swiftly Swoops into Susky

By Logan Garvey, Editor-in-Chief

  After completing her student teaching at Southwestern High School, English teacher Kyla Swope has now joined Warrior Nation to take over the English substitute position.

  Swope received her bachelors in communications from Shippensburg University and teacher certification from Wilson College.

  After growing up with two teachers as her parents, Swope decided that she would follow in their footsteps because she has an interest in working with kids. Although she is one now, Swopes did not always want to become an English teacher. She started off wanting to teach at the elementary level, but after serving as a substitute in an elementary school, she decided that she would rather teach older kids.
