Melissa Swarr is a teacher in the Hempfield School District in Lancaster, PA. She received her Bachelor’s Degree from Millersville University, M.A. Ed. Admin at University of Phoenix, and is currently working on completion of a Master’s Degree in Spanish at Millersville University. Mrs. Swarr decided to create a course at her district titled, “Spanish for Healthcare” not only because of the large student population entering a field in health, but because her experience instructing at a local nursing college emphasized the need for a specialized course where the contents could be immediately utilized in the field. She has three sons and resides in Lancaster, PA with her husband Chris.
