Wendy Legault

Literacy Interventionist

Hello! This is my 5th year as a literacy interventionist at Swanson! I have been teaching in Jeffco for 16 years with a variety of experience in the primary grades and 17 years in early childhood.  I am trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach to literacy through the Institute of Multi-Sensory Education.  I love working with students helping them to become life-long readers. Outside of school, I've lived in Colorado most of my life, I love everything from hiking, golfing, fishing, camping and spending time with my family which includes my amazing husband Corby, my 2 children Konner,26 and Hailey,22 and my step-daughter Jorden 23, my step-son Brady who is also 22 then last by not least my furry family, Stella and Roxie located in the pictures to the left. I love being a part of the Swanson community and I look forward to each new year with Swanson Families!

Occupational Therapist 

I have been an Occupational Therapist for 6 years and my passion is supporting kids in their development to independence! I have worked all around the country in hospitals, home health, early intervention and outpatient clinics. I serve children at Swanson, Weber, Thomson and Lawrence elementary schools. When I am not at schools, I spend as much time as possible outside camping, running, climbing, biking and snowboarding. I can't wait to get to know your little ones!
