NCA has hired Ms. Freddie Swinson to teach Secondary Math. She comes to us after two years teaching in Oscoda Area Schools and specializes in individual instruction and lots of hands-on activities that bring mathematics to real life applications. Ms. Swinson received her Bachelor’s of Science in Secondary Education in Mathematics from Central Michigan University. She is also interested in helping with theater and possibly forming a Forensics and Debate team. When you step into her classroom this fall, be sure to give her a warm NCA welcome!
