Lake Spokane Elementary is growing! Due to a large number of first grade students, the district has hired another teacher!! Miss Teri Swancara joins the teaching staff at Lake Spokane Elementary this year. While she may be new to LSE, she is not new to our district, having completed both a one-year practicum and her student teaching at Nine Mile Falls Elementary with Mrs. Marcie Norstadt.
Miss Swanson grew up in Riverside, attending all their schools. She earned her Teaching Credential and Bachelor's degree from Eastern Washington University in Early Childhood Education. While at Eastern, she taught as a Lead Teacher for Kindercare (Farwell) for six years and also served as its Assistant Director for a year. After graduating from Eastern, she substituted for Mead and our district for a year.
Miss Swancara will become Mrs. Armstrong next June! She and her future husband enjoy hiking, camping, and being outside with their two large dogs. "I love this district and being able to student teach and now work here has been a gift," she shared. "I fell in love with it when student teaching with Marcie. The district feels united...all on the same page for the benefit of the kids. I feel blessed."
