Mrs. Carissa Swing-Thomas


I am pleased to serve as the Instructional Coach at McClendon Elementary. I feel honored to be a part of the Brave family and to have the opportunity to work with the amazing teachers and staff in all aspects of education.

Before coming to Community ISD, I worked as a 5th grade teacher for three years and 2nd grade for three years.

I obtained my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and my undergraduate work from Texas A&M University - Commerce. I am married and have four wonderful children - my oldest daughter is a freshman at Kansas University, a son is a Junior in High School, a son in 3rd grade and daughter in Kindergarten! 

I am looking forward to a great school year!
