Ms. Swink's English Page


My name is Sharon Swink, and I have been affiliated with the Coal City School District for over 8 years now.  My undergraduate degree comes from East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, and I received my master’s degree from Olivet Nazarene University in Kankakee. 

            I became a middle school teacher because I enjoy helping your children make life connections to the material we read and write about in the classroom.   It is my goal to help them develop skills that will not only prepare them for success in high school, but for life. 

           I am going to teach your child the way that I would want my own children taught. I am going to hold them accountable, I am going to challenge them, and I am going to be there for them when they struggle.  There may be instances where you have a question about your student’s performance in my class. Feel free to contact me whenever you have concerns so that we can chat and figure out what is going on to clear up any of your worries.
