Hi, my name is Mr. Swiderski and this is my third year teaching fourth grade at W.C. Petty. I was born and raised in Chicago, and I've lived in Round Lake for the last 20 years. I earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from National Louis University and prior to becoming a teacher, I worked in corporate finance.
I'm a strong believer in the importance of life-long learning, and I can't wait to share this passion with my students! I'm also a parent of two amazing boys, so I fully understand the importance that a teacher can have on the life of a child. I will work hard to provide every student with a safe, engaging, and fun environment to learn and grow. I also believe in the importance of building a responsive and caring classroom culture to help nurture all of the young learners in our class.
Welcome to our class!
