Hi! I'm Shelli Row 🙂 I have worked at Adena for 20 years. The first 16 years I was a student aide and had the pleasure of helping three different students succeed in school. As a one-on-one aide, I developed a very special bond with each one of them that still lasts to this day. In 2017, I was extremely fortunate to move to our preschool program. I enjoy watching the little ones grow, build friendships and develop a love for school! My job is exciting and full of fun! 🙂 I have been married for 36 years to my wonderful husband, Ben. We have two awesome children, Ben and Nicole, along with Nicole's significant other, Ben. We have also been blessed with 3 amazing grandkids, Sunshine, Kyle, and Makenlee, plus a grand-dog, Dawn. My husband and I enjoy going to flea markets to find unique treasures. We also love to go mushroom hunting and spend our summers soaking in the pool. My favorite saying is "Smile! Be Happy!"

Hello Warriors! My name is Mrs. Swiggett. This will be my seventh year of teaching, but my third year of teaching third grade at Adena. I am a 2011 graduate of Adena High School and 2015 graduate of Otterbein University. I obtained my Master’s Degree in Literacy from the American College of Education in 2019. For me, the greatest joy of teaching is to see the growth in my students from the beginning to the end of the year and being able to celebrate their successes alongside them. My husband and I have a long-standing appreciation for The Village as we have experienced the support of the community throughout our childhood and now in our careers as educators. We have two sons, Aaron and Micah, that we’re equally as excited and thankful to grow up in this community. I am looking forward to another incredible school year! Go Big Blue!

Hello all...Ms. Clark here. I’m starting my 21st year in teaching as an Adena Warrior. I teach Title reading in the elementary. I love teaching kids to read. I tell my students with reading a book can take you anywhere in the world. It’s the most affordable way to travel. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family (especially my dog Boomer), working out, and working in my flower beds. -Collect Moments Not Things-
