Welcome to 4th Grade!

Fourth Grade is an amazing year filled with exciting subjects, fun activities, and challenging projects!

Hello! My name is Mrs. Lindsay Swan. I have a bachelors degree in Elementary Education and Junior High/Middle School Language Arts from Indiana State University. I also earned my masters degree in Literacy from Indiana State University. This is my 24th year teaching. In that time, I  have taught a variety of grades and subjects including: Reading Recovery, Third Grade, Fourth Grade, Sixth Grade Language Arts, and Seventh Grade Language Arts. I am married and have two children: a daughter and a son. I enjoy watching my kids play a variety of sports such as volleyball, baseball, tennis, and golf. My two favorite vacation spots are Disney World and the beach. I love reading a good book, relaxing with my friends and family, and watching a good movie.  Jelly Belly jellybeans and coffee are two of my favorite things. I’m looking forward to an awesome school year!
