Hello!  My name is Mr. Swenson, and I am extremely excited for another upcoming year at MHE with what is an amazing 6th grade team. This is will be my fifth year at MHE, and I will be teaching math. I grew up in Illinois, attended Northern Illinois University, and have taught fourth through sixth grade for the past nineteen years. I have also had the privilege of coaching football and basketball for the past eighteen years and am a huge sports fan. I have two daughters, one in middle school and the other is a third grader at MHE. When I am not teaching, some of my favorite activities include fishing, biking, playing with Izak (my black lab), watching my kids participate in different sporting activities, and spending time with my family. I also enjoy listening to and collecting various types of music. It is going to be a fun year filled with growth, opportunities, and excitement!!
