• Hello and Welcome to Ms. Freedom Swink's Site

    This (2019-20) is my nineteenth year in the teaching profession.  I absolutely love what I do.  I have taught 7th Grade Math, Beginning Algebra, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and Geometry in the course of my career.  This year, I have one class of Pre-AP Algebra I and four classes of 8th Pre-Algebra and have the privilege of working with a para-professional teacher in all Pre-Algebra classes. In classes where para-professional teachers are present, students will have access to both of us for assistance and each adult in the room will work to ensure your child's understanding of procedures, content/class material and follow the expectations and discipline set out in the course syllabus.  
     
    Five years ago, during the 2014-15 school year, I was nominated by my colleagues to represent our school as the Brink Junior High Teacher of the Year!  There are so many deserving teachers here at Brink, but I am thankful to have been chosen.  What an honor...
     
    In December of 2018, I achieved National Board certification in Mathematics/Early Adolescence. 
     
    I believe that every student can learn. We all have difficulties with different things in our lives, but all students can have some measure of success. My goal or mission is to help my students see that they are intelligent and important!
