Mr. Artie Lewis

North Carolina State University - Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with STEM concentration
 
My name is Artie Lewis and I am so excited to be teaching 1st grade at Swift Creek! I am a North Carolina native and love our great state! I graduated from NC State here in Raleigh in 2015. I have been teaching in the Wake County Public School System ever since! I have previously taught 3rd grade, 2nd grade, and 1st grade. I love teaching, but in my time away from school I enjoy reading a good book, spending time with my family, traveling to visit them and going to the beach or the pool!  
 
I am so excited for a great school year together with you and your family!

Mrs. Elisa Pearson

East Carolina University - Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education
 
I am an alumna of Swift Creek Elementary School! I received my degree in Elem. Education from East Carolina University in 2009. I previously taught in Pitt County and in England. This will be my seventh year teaching at Swift Creek.

My husband Jamie and I welcomed our littlest love, Emmeline, in February 2020. She makes me smile and laugh every day. I love to travel and explore new places. It is a life goal to visit every continent; so far, I have visited 4. Some of my most favorite things are being outdoors and spending time with my family. I love cheering on the Wolfpack in any sport, but especially in football.

I am so happy to be back at Swift Creek as an Instructional Assistant for first grade. I’ve worked with children throughout most of my career, originally as a child therapist for many years, and then in various school settings as a teacher assistant. I grew up in South Florida, lived in South Florida after college, spent some time outside of Chicago, and then moved to North Carolina 4 years ago. I love to workout, run, hike, spend lots of time at the beach, and watch college football. I live in Apex with my husband, my two teen boys, and my two crazy dogs.
