Hi, my name is Carrie Swanson, and I am a 3rd grade teacher. I have been teaching in Aurora Public Schools for 14 years. Before coming to Edna and John W. Mosley P-8, I was a Literacy Coach and I’ve taught kindergarten through 3rd grade. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and dogs, staying active and completing DIY projects. The thing I am most excited about for the school year is getting to know my new students and watching them grow! My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by building relationships with my students and their families, planning and teaching engaging, standards-based lessons and I use data and research based practices to increase student achievement. My community needs me to do my job.
