Emily Swanson


Hi! My name is Emily Swanson and I was born in the San Francisco/Bay Area, where I spent most of my childhood swimming and babysitting. For high school, I moved with my family to Pinehurst, NC. I attended Southern Virginia University where I studied Liberal Arts. After college, I got married and moved back to North Carolina to begin my work as an Interior designer and begin raising our 5 incredible children. I have worked with children for most of my adult life, through service in church, schools, and volunteering with the refugee services of Texas.  I am very excited for this opportunity to now teach at CRCDS.

Favorite Scripture:  (I’m sorry, I could not choose just 1)
Deuteronomy 31:6Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”
Romans 8:38-39 “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:16 16 “The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:”
