Welcome to First Grade! I am very happy to have your child in my class this year. My name is Kara Swanson, and this is my 24th year teaching.  I am a life-long learner.  I received my Masters in Literacy, with an emphasis in bilingual education, many years ago, but continue to learn and grow every year by improving my techniques and learning new strategies for working with young children. This year we will be learning to read more fluently, to write for a variety of purposes, expand our math strategies and practice math fluency, and will explore our world through science concepts. I'm sure your child will be successful. I value your support and feedback.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have.
