Marfa superintendent to retire
MARFA – Teloa Swinnea, the Marfa Independent School District superintendent the past five years and a 30-year career educator, will retire at the end of the current school year.
Marfa school board members, meeting in special session Monday evening, accepted Swinnea’s retirement with regret.
Swinnea, who began as a Marfa classroom teacher in 1982, said it was fitting that she conclude her years in public education where she began her education career.
She was the Marfa junior/senior high school principal when she was named interim superintendent in August 2007, and was named superintendent two months later.
She also taught school at Fort Davis, McCamey, and Presidio, where she also was an administrator, before joining the Region 18 Education Service Center in Midland as a consultant in school administration.
