About Mrs. Swonke
I would like to take this time to introduce myself. My name is Holly Swonke. I am thrilled to be your child’s teacher! This year is going to be an AWESOME learning experience with lots of fun activities. I can't wait to get started! This is my sixteenth year of teaching (all in Kindergarten J). This is my first year at Lyon Elementary. I was previously at Smith Elementary on the east side. I am super excited about teaching kindergarten at Lyon! I graduated from Sam Houston State University. I majored in elementary education, specializing in early childhood. I have a PASSION for teaching kindergarten and it is so rewarding in many ways. It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students!
I have been married to my amazing husband, Jeremy for fourteen years. We have two incredible daughters, Kylee who will be in seventh grade at MHJ and Kynsley who will be in fifth grade at MIS. This will be the first year for all of us to be on different campuses. Our girls are the joy of our lives! They take up most of my free time with their dance teams but some of my hobbies I enjoy are running/exercising, fishing, and going to our place in Port O’Connor.
I am looking forward to working with your child this year and helping him/her to achieve his/her highest potential. It's going to be an AWESOME year!!
