I’m Lori Swan, and I teach 6th,7th, and 8th grade gifted language arts at Palos South Middle School. I have been at South since 1998, and I have been the ALPS teacher since 2002. I also sponsor Student Council and serve on the board of directors of the Illinois Association for Gifted Children. Currently I co-chair the education committee, the scholarship committee, and serve as treasurer.
I earned a B.A. in English from Illinois Wesleyan University, an M.A. in Education from St. Xavier University, an M.A. in Gifted Education from Northeastern Illinois University, and I hold gifted endorsements for middle school and high school.
