Mrs. Valerie Swenson
Hello first graders and their families! I'm so excited to be one of your first grade teachers this year!
This is my fourth year teaching first grade. I taught for three years in the Littleton Elementary school district, and then took a 12 year absence to spend time with my children. All three of my children are part of the Deer Valley School district! My oldest has just finished at Desert Sage and is moving on to Hillcrest this year for her seventh grade year. I have a daughter in fifth grade and a son in third grade here at Desert Sage.
I am very geeky (you'll see a lot of Doctor Who things in my classroom), but I also love hiking, biking, sailing on our sailboat, swimming, puzzles, and board games. I look forward to an amazing year!
