“My students and this community are such a large part of my life. What I receive from them is worth what I give and more. Good things are happening at William Wells Brown, and I am happy to be recognized as a part of that,” Sword said. “Science is about awareness, curiosity, questioning, and investigation. After engagement, I am merely the facilitator of this process. Hopefully I will instill a life-long love of learning in my children.”

A native of Pikeville, Sword earned a Bachelor of Arts in education (certified for grades K-9) from Midway College and her master’s degree from Georgetown College.

She has taught in Fayette County Public Schools for nine years, including eight at William Wells Brown.
