(Team 5th Grade! Swantek and Miller)
AJ West Elementary
Welcome to 5th Grade!! I am really looking forward to a great 2018-2019 school year. This will be my first year as a 5th grade teacher, but my teaching partner ( Mrs. Miller) and I have been working hard over the summer to coordinate our schedules, curriculum maps, and subject content so all of our 5th graders will have a similar experience. Mrs. Miller was one of my mentors during my student teaching days, and we work extremely well together.
I recently completed my Masters in Teaching from City University of Seattle, and I have my Bachelor of Arts degree in Family and Consumer Studies (specializing in Interior Design) from Central Washington University.
I was born and raised in Grays Harbor, but spent a number of years living around the Country as a Flight Attendant for American Airlines. I moved back to Hoquiam in 2007, where I live with my husband and my son.
I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
