Teacher of the Week: Tracy Swick

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – Great teachers win over more than the hearts and minds of students; they impress parents too. And it was the mother of a fourth grade student who nominated this week’s Teacher of the Week.

Naamah Noble said her daughter has the best teacher in the world! “Her dedication, passion for teaching and the belief her students can and will achieve in her classroom is a testimony to the many lives she continues to touch and change in an amazing way,” she said.

Noble is talking about Tracy Swick. The fourth grade teacher is a mother of three and said she draws on that experience to make her students feel loved and right at home in the classroom.

“I still have older students I keep in touch with today,” she said. “They’re like extended family.”

Students said their teacher is more than an inspiration in the classroom. She’s also a great referee when it comes to kickball! Earning respect in and outside the classroom isn’t an easy feat. Swick said she’s thrilled…and shocked…she now holds the title Teacher of the Week.
