About Me

Welcome to Kindergarten! 

Hello, my name is Shirley Swallow. I have a beautiful daughter who attends Baylor University, a wonderful husband, and two dogs, Elle and Sophie, who I treat like my children!!
I have been a kindergarten teacher for 21 years and have been teaching for 25 years. I graduated from Tarleton State University in 1993. Go Texans! Fight Texans! Fight! Fight! Fight! I am a Delta Zeta, and love pink and green! 
This is my 9th year to be teaching at Santa Fe Elementary. I am a reading specialist and love to teach students how to read. I encourage forming a strong relationship between home and school so your child will grow as a learner. Learning does not only occur at school; it needs to be supported at home. I believe that respectful, caring bonds with children and their families are the vital foundation for a wonderful kindergarten experience. I believe that each child has unique strengths and different backgrounds. My instruction must be differentiated to provide enough challenge and support for all children. 
My door is always open! Please feel free to call during my conference @ 1:15-2:15. My phone number is 817-202-2325. You may leave a message with your name, number, and brief message.
