A Message from the Principal of

Swainston Middle School,

Lori Desiderato



April 23, 2021


Dear Swainston Family:

The purpose of this email is to let my Swainston students, parents, & guardians know that I had a very difficult faculty meeting yesterday.  I've facilitated hundreds of faculty meetings throughout my years so why was this one so difficult?

This one was difficult and also bittersweet because I announced to the faculty and support professionals that I will be retiring from CCSD in June of 2021. I spent 17 years, of my 28 year

career in CCSD, at Swainston Middle School.  It has been such an honor to serve in the role of teacher, assistant principal and principal at Swainston. I have enjoyed working with the students, parents and staff and I loved every minute of being in the "kid business."  However, it is time for me to hang up my walkie talkie and hand my keys over to the next principal to lead Swainston Middle School into the future.   


I am confident that upper leadership along with the Swainston Middle School SOT will select an excellent replacement.  Swainston will always have a place in my heart and I will miss it dearly.  


I'm excited, nervous, scared, and sad all mixed together.  The thought of retirement seems surreal.  I haven't quite wrapped my head around the fact that my career as an educator is coming to an end in less than 2 months.  


Take care and stay safe, Thunderbirds!  I will miss you!
