Hello My Name Is...

Julieann Swann

Hilton Head Island Elementary School Fifth Grade Teacher, Julieann Swann

Mission Statement 

I believe in preparing my students for lifelong success.  In addition to teaching our district mandated curriculum, I strive to teach daily lessons on how to be a successful individual in real world situations, as well as how to be a positive contributor or our local community.  Additionally, I believe in student-led learning where students are encouraged to lead discussions and projects using their own visions.  As a classroom teacher I will often give minimal directions to projects to encourage students to decide how best to proceed.

Personal Message

I am a 'highly qualified' teacher who is certified to teach birth through sixth grade in South Carolina, New York, and Virginia.  This is my sixth year teaching fifth grade on Hilton Head Island.  

I was born in New York where my husband and I both practiced law for a number of years before moving to Hilton Head Island where we currently reside with our three children.  After transitioning careers, I have found my passion in teaching.  

Working with children has been a truly enjoyable experience, and I look forward to another great school year!
