Welcome to Room 106!

Mr. Swenson

Second grade teacher

I am in my 31st year of teaching in Minneapolis. I began my career right here at Wenonah! Unfortunately, because I was a new teacher, I had to leave after the first year. I was then placed at Field school for one year, and taught a fourth, fifth, and sixth grade combination class. From there I headed to Kenny school, where I stayed for 13 years. Looking

for a change, I found an opening at Wenonah, and have been back "home" at Wenonah for 15 years. I have taught both second and third grade since I've been back.

I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1985 and earned my Master of Arts degree at St. Thomas University in 1998. My hobbies include bicycling, motorcycling, antique collecting, and gardening.

I hope I remember everything my instructor taught me!

 I believe that all students can be successful and a major part of guaranteeing every childs success is to have a positive relationship with him/her. Children love to learn and learn best in a trusting, caring, respectful environment. Feel free to contact me anytime. Email usually works best. I check my email at least three times daily, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
