Becky Sweat, SLP
Born in North Carolina, I moved to Cedartown at the age of three when my dad, Richard Jewell, bought an optometry practice here. I attended Northside Elementary, Purks Junior High, and graduated from Cedartown High School. After attending Agnes Scott College for two years, I transferred to the University of Georgia, where I received a BA degree in music, with a specialty in organ.
Eventually returning to Cedartown, I married Ed Sweat, who practiced dentistry until 2003. We were married for 27 years until he passed away in 2008 due to complications from an accident. While raising our family, I taught piano lessons and was director of First United Methodist Preschool.
Returning to school in 1998, I went to the University of West Georgia, receiving a B.Ed. and M.Ed. in Speech Language Pathology. I have been working with Polk School District since 2001 at various schools, serving students from PreK through High School. I am presently based at Young’s Grove Elementary School.
