Mrs. Kristin Swanson

Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!
Hello and welcome to Mrs. Swanson's webpage.  I am excited to start my fifth year at Lowell Scott.  LSMS has been a wonderful school and I look forward to working with your amazing students over the course of the year.  This year I will be teaching:
     * English 8
     * Honors English 8
     * Personal Finance and Careers
I was born and raised in the Treasure Valley, and graduated from Meridian High in 2002.  After graduation, I attended Boise State University and graduated with a BA in English in 2007.  In the fall of 2007, I started my teaching career at West Middle School in Nampa.  During my seven years at WMS, I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Language Arts, Co-taught SPED Language Arts, Reading Strategies, and 8th grade Honors English.  In 2009, I went back to Boise State and graduated with my MA in Literacy (Reading Intervention) in 2011. 
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 13 years in September and we have two beautiful daughters.  Katelynn (11) is in 6th grade at LSMS and Gracie (9) is in 4th grade at Pioneer School of the Arts.  We also have two kittens, Huckleberry and Malificient, and an adorable two-year-old English mastiff named Athena.
In our spare time, we like to explore the mountains and lakes around the state.  Kayaking has become a new favorite for everyone in the family.  We are also a family of hardcore Boise State football and basketball fans!  We go to as many games as possible...even the away games.  The girls also keep us quite busy with soccer, volleyball, and basketball games and dance recitals.
I do believe in a strong home-school connection, so I welcome any communication on your student's progress or assignments.  I will respond to email, calls, or notes as quickly as possible.
