Hello, Swallow parents and students! My name is Becky Christian and I have the pleasure of teaching 3rd grade this year at Swallow School.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with a Bachelors of Science in Education (1-8) and a minor in Spanish. I am a Swallow School alumni, Hartland native, and have truly enjoyed being back at Swallow as a teacher. I am beginning my 14th year of teaching this year!
In my time away from school, I love spending quality time with my family, which consists of my husband, two daughters, and our youngest son. We love spending time outdoors, playing games, reading, fishing, and cooking.
I am looking forward to starting this new year at Swallow School, getting to know your child, and making happy memories together. Let's have a positive and successful year, and I can't wait to meet you all soon!
Hello, Swallow Parents and Students! My name is Brooke Schroeder and I have the honor of teaching 3rd grade this year at Swallow School.
I graduated from Carroll University in 2023 with a Bachelors of Science in Education (4K-9) and Cross-Categorical Special Education (K-12). This is my first teaching position and I couldn’t be more thrilled to start my career as an educator at Swallow. I participated in a residency program my senior year where I taught special education and general education in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade. I am excited to continue to grow as an educator to ensure I am providing students a great education in a positive environment!
In my time away from school, I love spending quality time with my family. We love spending time outdoors, golfing, reading, playing with my dog (a golden retriever), baking, and cooking.
I am looking forward to starting at Swallow School this year, building relationships with students, and making happy memories together. Let’s have a great school year!
Hello! My name is Sam Hett, and I am so excited to be part of the Swallow family!
I graduated from Viterbo University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (Pre-K- 6th) and a minor in Early Childhood Education. I was also a student athlete for the men’s basketball team at Viterbo. I spent the first year of my college career in Irvine, California, but I knew my family and friends in Wisconsin would eventually lead me back home.
I have taught kindergarten, second, third, fourth and fifth grades in Milwaukee, Waterford, Johnson Creek and Wauwatosa throughout my 23-year teaching career. I strongly value personalized learning and meeting students at their readiness levels. I prioritize helping students in managing their social emotional regulation. This provides students with the tools necessary to not only be successful in the classroom but in the community as well.
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three young children. We spend any free time we have boating and being outdoors during Wisconsin’s warmest months. My favorite activities include attending Wisconsin sporting events and concerts. I am a huge fan of the Packers, Brewers, Badgers and Bucks.
