Mrs. June Bullard

Hello!  I'm Mrs Bullard and my paraprofessional (teacher assistant) is Mrs Swoap. She is with our class every day, all day. This will be our fourth year together and she loves her job as much as I do. She is a precious asset to the VPK program at SWES. Mrs Swoap has been with MCPS for 25 years. She is married, has two adult sons and two young grandsons.

I am a fourth generation native to Marion county (my great grandmother was born here in Weirsdale in 1893! The house is still there behind Biellings).  I am married and the mother of two grown sons.  I have two grandaughters; one 16 years old, the other just turned 6.  I enjoy the outdoors, swimming, and reading in my spare time.

My teaching career began here at Stanton Weirsdale Elementary School in 1989 as a PreK and Headstart teacher for Childhood Development Services.  I left that job in 1996 to finish my bachelor's degree, then returned to SWES in 1998 to teach first grade for 12 years.  I have also taught second, third, and fourth grades.  Four years ago, four weeks into the new school year, I was asked if I still had an interest in PreK.  At the time, my granddaughter was almost two years old and being around her made me remember how much I love the early years.  I had the weekend to think it over, and that Monday my life changed!!!  My career took a U-turn practically overnight, bringing me back to where began 30 years ago.  I am so very happy to be here!!
