Julaine Swithers
Elementary Classroom Assistant, 2012

Mrs. Swithers earned her B.A. in English from Houghton College in New York and her MSJ from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. While raising and home schooling her five children, she completed additional training to become an educational therapist and Wilson reading specialist. Mrs. Swithers’s methods and her approach to education mesh well with Montessori. She believes every child has strengths and gifts that they can draw upon as they learn new things and meet new challenges.
