Mr. John Swift

Hello, I am Mr. Swift and I teach 7th grade English Language Arts at Beattie Middle School.  This is my 19th year teaching in the Redlands Unified School District.  I have been at Beattie since it opened in 2003.  I have a Bachelor's degree in English-Literature and a single subject teaching credential from Cal State San Bernardino, and a Master's degree in School Counseling from the University of Redlands.  I teach two periods of General English, two periods of Honors English, and one period of Exploratory Art.  Other duties I have at Beattie are English department head, Boys Volleyball coach, Girs Softball coach, and 7th grade Intramural Sports advisor. Teaching middle school is challenging, fun, and rewarding, and I wouldn't want any other job in the world!
