My name is Mr. Swanson, I grew up in Long Island, New York. I attended Augustana College. I teach 5th and 6th grade English, Language Arts and History. The reason I became a teacher was because i knew what it was like to struggle. I wanted students to know that if you work hard, your diligence will pay off. My hobbies and interests are being a serious drummer and weightlifter, I'm even more serious about teaching and living life as a good Christian.
