Mrs. Karol Sweeterman
I am so pleased to be part of L. A. Ainger Middle School! I have lived in Beaumont, Texas, Poughkeepsie, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Englewood, Florida! I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at the University of Alabama and my Master's degree in Educational Leadership through Nova University. I taught multiple grades and subjects at L.A. Ainger Middle School for many years and was then the ESE Liaison at Lemon Bay High School. I am happy to teaching middle schoolers again and appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the Cougar staff! My husband, Mike, is a retired middle school teacher and assistant principal now turned professional fishing charter captain. Our children are Sarah and Garrett, both graduates of Florida State University! We have a pet that is an athletic dog who loves to fish, play frisbee, and tag along wherever we go! I am looking forward to a great year with our wonderful students and LAAMS staff!
