Welcome to Doug Swan's 5th Grade Class

  • I chose elementary education, because my goal as an educator is to have a positive influence on a students' self-image. When a student leaves my classroom, I want them to have increased self-confidence, and the ability to learn by taking risks and learning from mistakes.

    "Poor choices lead to no choices."  
    "We have to row our own boat."  
    "Making mistakes and learning is learning."
