Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Canyon Ridge Families! My name is Ankita Swali and I am very excited to be a part of Canyon Ridge as an ESCE teacher. I am new to NEISD and Canyon Ridge and I look forward to a great school year! I have been an elementary classroom teacher grades Pre K-5th in general ed and special ed classroom settings for the past 11 years and have a storng love and passion for Early Childhood Education. I enjoy working with little ones and help them learn and grow at their own pace in a fun and challenging way. I believe in learning through play and nature based play and enjoy creating project based leanring opportunities for little learners.
I have a Bachelor's Degree In Russian Language and Literature and I am currently working on my National Board Certification. I grew up In India and cherish visiting family back home every summer. I live in Stone Oak with my husband and we have an active and happy 3 year old boy that keeps us busy. In my free time I enjoy cooking, reading and travelling with family. I enjoy spending time with my little one and exploring places in and around San Antonio.
I am hopeful and can't wait to create lasting memories with creative little learners this school year!
