My son was in a private school that did not have the resources to accomodate his learning. He was only in Kindergarten but his learning level was very demanding for a Kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Katie Clark at Swanson began her first year with Swanson and My son was assigned to her class. I never thought my son was going to accomplish anything in Kindergarten except learn better social skills. I was so wrong. Katie Clark took on a classroom with all different levels of learning and catered to each one. Every child in Mrs. Clark's class took home more than just learning, they learned self esteem and confidence that I have never seen a teacher accomplish as well as Mrs. Clark. My child was very fortunate to have Mrs. Clark, she is the very best Kindergarten Teacher I have every seen. M
