    Hi! My name is Mrs. Swanson and I am THRILLED to be your teacher.  It's going to be fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures and I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us.  
    I was born in Carroll, Iowa and went to school in Royal, Iowa.  I am the youngest of four!  I have and older sister, Tami and two older brothers, Tony and Mike.   I attended SouthWest State University in Marshall, Minnesota and then transferred to Buena Vista Unniversity in Storm Lake, Iowa.  I majored in elementary education and coaching.  
    I taught early childhood for 10 years and during that time I picked up my Special Education and Title One Reading Endorsements.  I  taught Elementary Special Education for 9 years and and this will be my 6th year in Second Grade and I Am So Excited!
    I am married and have 4 beautiful children.  My husband Chris farms and raises show cattle.  My oldest son went to Iowa State and is now farming with his dad.  My daughter, Allie is married and has a beautiful daughter named Lennon and son named Briar.  Collin works at Green Leaf and lives in Sioux Rapids,  and  the baby of the family is Kal, not so much of a baby anymore, and he is farming with his dad and is managing a hog site.   I also am the proud owner of one dog and 1 cat.  I love being with my family and being outdoors.  
    I am So excited to be your Teacher and for you to be part of this AWESOME group of Incredible Students..
