Hi, I'm Mrs. Swygert and I'm the Career Specialist here at Fulmer! I'm a proud product of Lexington Two, and Fulmer is where I spent my middle school years, so this place is very near and dear to my heart. I've been on staff since 2005 and have been the Career Specialist since 2013.
What the heck is a Career Specialist, anyway? Well...at Fulmer our mission is to help every child know they can be successful, and my job fits into that mission by providing students with information about colleges and careers, and by helping them discover their interests and abilities through classroom career lessons and various career assessments while they are in middle school. The discoveries they make in middle school will serve to help them narrow down interests for high school courses and post-secondary education and career opportunities.
I'm a graduate of Airport High School and Carson-Newman University (Jefferson City, TN). I am a certified Global Career Development Facilitator and am active in my church, Mt. Hermon Lutheran in West Columbia. I am married to Terry Swygert and have two adult children, Noah and Rebekah. I love Lexington Two, and especially Fulmer Middle School, where I am blessed to work among wonderful administrators, faculty and staff, for the most amazing students ever! Go Falcons!
