Marshall University - Bachelor of Science in Music Education

I would like to welcome you to music at Swift Creek Elementary School. I will be returning to WCPSS for my 16th year of teaching, and am excited for my first year as a Swift Creek Cougar. My husband, Jay, and I live in Apex with our three sons, a dog, a snake, and two guinea pigs. I enjoy traveling, crocheting, everything Snoopy, and visiting my friends and family. During the summer months, I join my church family in mission work where we help families in need have warmer, safer, and drier, housing. I am originally from West Virginia and the D.C. metro area, so I proudly cheer on the Washington Capitals and West Virginia Mountaineers.

I love to collaborate with my colleagues to engage children in meaningful learning opportunities. My classroom is a busy place with students singing, playing instruments, and learning through movement. There is always something interesting happening in music! I look forward to getting to know you this year. I am excited to make this my best year yet!

Mr. Trey Hines - Healthful Living Physical Education

University of Mount Olive - Bachelor of Science in Health & Physical Education

Hello everyone, my name is George Hines III (Trey), and I am the healthful living physical education teacher at Swift Creek. I am extremely blessed to have the opportunity to teach the students at this school. My goal is to have a positive impact on not only the students but also the community. 

I graduated from the University of Mount Olive with my health and physical education degree in 2018. I am happily married for five years now and we have a son who is two and half years old. This year we welcomed our new baby girl Finley Mae Hines! We live in Sanford, but before that, I had lived in Apex for all of my life. I am a huge sports fan. Some of my favorite teams include Duke, Carolina Panthers, and the Carolina Hurricanes. My favorite things to do would be working out, hanging out with my family and friends, and going on cruises (best way to vacation pre-covid!!!).  

I am very passionate about health and physical fitness. This is why I am so grateful for the opportunity to be able to teach students every day about health and fitness. I want to be able to provide the tools for students to live a lifelong healthy and active lifestyle.

Mrs. Jennifer McIntyre - Art

Meredith College - Bachelor of Arts in Visual Art, K-12 Art Education

My name is Jennifer McIntyre and this is my fourth year at Swift Creek. I graduated from Meredith College in 1989. After several years working in arts administration I returned to school to become an art teacher. I am very excited to see everyone in person this year and give students the opportunity to get their hands on supplies and reveal their creativity.

Originally from Raleigh, I live in Garner with my husband and three daughters. My oldest two attend Appalachian State University, and our third is a seventh-grader at North Garner. In addition, we have a sweet hyperactive German Short-haired Pointer, Piper, and two guinea pigs--Peter and Edmond. 

Summer 2019, I was immersed in the Czech culture, with twenty area teachers. We made connections with Czech educators, as well as collections of Czech cultural artifacts. This is a link to my travel blog and reflections https://czechccr.weebly.com/mcintyre-jennifer.html.

Summer 2021, I am blessed beyond belief journeying through chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer. This fall I will have a new “do.” The students were very creative in their headdress designs for me last Spring. All is good. And I look forward to meeting you.
