Mrs. Jennifer Swan
Hi! My name is Jennifer Swan, and this is my first year as the music teacher here at Cartersville Primary School. I have lived in Cartersville for the past 17 years and have been married to my wonderful husband, Alex, for 20 years. We have 3 children: Alex, 17 and a senior at Cartersville High School; Eli, 14 and a freshman at Cartersville High School; and Emberleigh, 10 and in 5th grade at Cartersville Elementary School. My musical career began at the young age of 6 when I began taking piano lessons. From then on, music became an integral part of my life and a love and a passion I realized I could not live without! As I got older, I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in music. I graduated from Georgia Southern University in 1997 with a BM in Piano Performance and the dream of becoming a full-time private piano teacher. A year later, I decided that I wanted to foster a love for music in as many little hearts as possible and become an elementary school music teacher. I returned to Georgia Southern, received my BM in Music Education in 2000, and began teaching at Red Bud Elementary in Calhoun, Georgia, where I happily remained for 18 years before becoming blessed with the music position here at CPS. I also completed my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership through Kennesaw State University in 2008. I am thrilled to be part of the Cartersville Schools family and will do my best to serve our system, our community, and your children well!
