About Your Child’s Teachers...

Sending a child to kindergarten is a huge milestone in a family’s life and we are dedicated to making this experience full of amazing memories and individual growth for every student in our class. We recognize that each child enters our classroom with very unique personalities and needs and We look forward to collaborating with you on the best strategies for fulfilling these needs. We are always open for any feedback you may have so please do not hesitate if you ever have a concern or suggestion.   

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to work with your incredible children!

About Mrs. Swanson...


I began my career as an educator back in 2003, fresh out of college from the University of N. Colorado, right here at Belle Creek as a kindergarten teacher. This was the very first year BCCS was open and I truly feel lucky to have had this opportunity that allowed me to play an integral role in developing the positive, student focused culture that is still evident at Belle Creek today. 

I taught kindergarten at BCCSfrom 2003-2006 and then pursued an opportunity to teach kindergarten in a dual language school in north Denver where I continued to teach kindergarten for an additional 10 years. During this time, a lot of things changed in my life including attaining a Masters in Education degree, getting married, and starting a family but two things always remained constant:

  • My passion for and commitment to providing kindergarten students an education that enriched the devrlopment of the whole child (social, emotional, academic, physical) while also providing a classroom structure that recognizes the importance of learning through play and arts integrated activities. 
  • A hope to someday return to Belle Creek as a parent and a teacher again, because I wholeheartedly believe that this is a special place with a rich curriculum and caring teachers who I know have my children’s best interests in mind. 

When the unexpected, and very last minute opportunity to teach kindergarten once again at Belle Creek was offered to me this year, I did not have to think twice about accepting.  I feel honored to have the opportunity to share my professional experience and diverse skill set with this community and I look forward to working with you all.
