Staff Spotlight: Michelle Swank

At Austin Public Schools, our mission is to inspire, empower, and accelerate every one of our learners, and we know that the only way for us to reach this goal is through the efforts of all our incredibly hard-working staff.  

In this week’s Staff Spotlight, we’re highlighting IJ Holton Intermediate School Language Arts teacher Michelle Swank.

"Mrs. Swank shows a great level of care for her students and a passion for teaching. She ignites [students’] interest in reading with her thoughtful book suggestions."

Congratulations!
