Amanda Swenson

Welcome to 5th Grade!

My name is Amanda Swenson, and I am a 5th grade teacher. This is my first year in Manhattan, and I am so excited to be teaching in such a great community! This is my third year as a teacher, and I love every second spent in the classroom. 

I graduated in 2013 from MSU with an Elementary Education (K-8) degree. After graduating, I taught two years in Belgrade as a 7th and 8th grade English teacher. I am currently back in school and doing online courses through Minnesota State University-Moorhead to get my degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy.

My family consists of my husband Daniel, who works in Belgrade, my daughter Kenzlee (1st grade), and my son Kolter (2 years old). We are in the process of building a house here in Manhattan, and we can't wait to raise our kids here and join the community.

Please feel free to contact me at anytime throughout the year if you have questions are concerns.

Thanks for letting me teach your child, and I can't wait to see where the 2017-2018 school year takes us!
