Depoali Middle School teacher awarded Excellence in Education


This month Depoali Middle School's Beth Swanberg is News Four's Excellence in Education Award Winner.

She is quite the veteran teacher with 28 years under her belt, but brings a brand new passion to her class every year.

Monday, as evening anchor Shelby Sheehan walked into her classroom with a photographer to surprise her, Swanberg was convinced it all was a prank, but it wasn't.

No, Swanberg is an amazing teacher and we wanted her to know how much the community appreciates her dedication.

Shelby popped in during her social studies class this week to give Swanberg the much deserved recognition.

Her colleagues say she is constantly pursuing professional development, making sure she is learning the latest ways to reach her students to make the biggest impact on her 7th and 8th graders.

She credits an equal passion for kids and social studies for her enthusiasm for teaching.

Congratulations to Beth Swanberg, News Four's Excellence in Education Award Winner.
