Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Swihart


I have lived in Crystal Lake for more than 20 years, but I was born and raised in Wisconsin.  (Yep, HUGE Packer fan!!)  This is my 13th year teaching at Woods Creek - that's a LUCKY number - and I love working with 5th graders!  I attended the University of Wisconsin at Madison, where I earned a degree in journalism.  Later in life I earned my teaching certification and Master's Degree from North Park University.  My own children attended Woods Creek where I frequently worked as a parent volunteer before becoming a teacher.
