He began as a Science/Social Studies Teacher at West Craven Middle School, where he taught and coached for three years. Mr. Swain then moved to West Craven High School (WCH) where he taught Science, History, and Exceptional Children for 15 years. While at WCH, Mr. Swain also dedicated his time to make a difference by coaching Girl’s Basketball, JV Volleyball, and Tennis.
