Mrs. Sarah Swanson

Mrs. Swanson has been in the field of education for twenty years. She began her career in the Chicago Public Schools teaching kindergarten, first and second grades. There, she transitioned into a K-8 literacy coordinator, which is similar to an instructional coach role. After moving to the suburbs, she dedicated the next chapter of her career to Round Lake Area Schools. Here, she has served the district and community as a literacy coach at Murphy and Village, a teacher on special assignment at Village functioning very much like an assistant principal, she spent three years as an Elementary Teaching and Learning Coordinator. She is most excited to be in the schools and serving as an Assistant Principal for the last few years. 

On a more personal note, she and her husband have lived in Vernon Hills for the past 11 years. They have a seven-year-old son and a newborn baby girl as well as an energetic German Shepard golden retriever mix. Over the last five years, she has learned a great deal about Legos, construction trucks, and dinosaurs.

Family, equity, and truth are her core values. She is very passionate about education and is looking forward to partnering with families and teachers to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and culturally responsive elementary school experience. She believes that by working together, we can listen, learn, and lead together.
