Mrs. Lee Swatzell

My name is Mrs. Lee Swatzell.  I'm a Kindergarten teacher at Paine Elementary School.  This is my 13th year teaching!  I've taught kindergarten, second grade, and third grade.  My bachelors degree is in Criminal Justice from the University of Alabama and my masters degree is in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from the University of Alabama in Birmingham.   

My husband, Michael, and I have 20-year-old, boy/girl twins, Collin and Anna Beth. Our favorite home away from home is Disney World! We have an older but energetic puppy dog named Sunny that loves it when all of her people are home and hanging out with her and a miniature schnauzer named Chicory with enormous ears for her size.  She keeps us all busy! I'm so excited for this 2021-2022 school year.  It is such an honor to be a part of your story! Let's write it together! :)
