Mrs. Erin Hyder
Welcome to W. L. Swain Elementary! My name is Erin Hyder. I am a graduate of Shorter College. I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education with certifications in Early Childhood, Middle Grades Math, Middle Grades Science, and Special Education. I have been married to Jacob Hyder for 9 years and have a three year old daughter, named Tessa. This will be my third year as a Special Education teacher. I have experience in the special education program as a paraprofessional in the mild/moderate classroom for two years. From 2011 through 2014, I was a paraprofessional at Gordon Central High School in the early childhood development center. From 2009 through 2011, I worked at Red Bud Elementary as a long-term substitute and co-director of the after school program. With this experience, I am professionally qualified to teach children from kindergarten through fifth grade. I look forward to working with you and your child this year at W.L. Swain Elementary School. Together, we will work to achieve our goals and help your child become the best student he or she can be. It will be an exciting year!
