Meet Ms. Swanson/5th Grade!
I was born and raised in the small town of Oxford, Kansas. I graduated High School at Oxford in 2011 and currently reside there with my fiancé. My last name is about to change because I am engaged to be married November 12, 2016. My new name will be Mrs. Kollmeyer! I have 2 dogs and their names are Hank and Four! I’m an athlete by heart and I had the privilege to continue my softball career after high school. I started out at Northern Oklahoma College for two years while earning my associate’s degree. After Northern, I transferred to Newman University to finish my college softball career and earn my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I love being in the outdoors, including hunting, fishing, trapping, farming, running, and anything that involves being outside.
This will be my first year teaching at Adam’s Elementary and I am excited for the new school year as I will be teaching the 5th grade. I can’t wait to meet my students and create memories and relationships that’ll last forever.
One of my biggest passions is striving to become better every day. I push myself to become a better teacher and person every day. I want to encourage my students to better themselves by setting goals to strive for. Strive to be better than you were the day before.
“If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
