Welcome to Miss Schwalm's 1st Grade!!
My name is Miss Schwalm. This is my tenth year of teaching. I have taught for nine years, all in first grade. I taught for five years at Howard Wilson Elementary and the last four here at Henry Leavenworth. I was the 2012 Leavenworth Elementary Teacher of the Year. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Saint Mary here in Leavenworth. I also played Varsity Basketball there. I earned my Master's Degree from Emporia State as a Reading Specialist in 2012. My passion is kids and watching them grow and learn. I believe that all students can learn and my role as a teacher is to make sure that this happens. I strongly believe that a child's education is successful only if the parent and teacher work together. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns so that I can do my best to help.
Teaching is my first passion because I love working with kids, however, I love playing and watching sports. My favorite sports are basketball, baseball/softball, and football. I am a diehard KU basketball fan and St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my 19 month old nephew. I like to travel and visit new places. Words that describe be are: happy, laughs, high expectations, busy, Chipotle, spaghetti, gummy worms, warm chocolate chip cookies, shopping, days at the lake, sun, heat, cooking, country music, and church are just a few.
