Dr. Michelle Swann has worked at universities in Switzerland and Canada. Her recent book, Teenaged Mothers: Designing a Fabulous Life, is close to her heart as she was a teen mom. Dr. Michelle Swann’s Ph.D. looked at how the most expensive schools in the world marketed themselves historically and how the Swiss Tourism Agency marketed Switzerland as a country of natural-born educators to support their private school-based tourism business. She has taught teachers in training the history of education, schooling, and childhood. She has also taught classes in popular culture and international relations. In her spare time, she sails, rows, and hikes.
