Mrs. Frances Swanberg
I have been working at DPS since 2014. I was hired as an Elementary 2 (grades 4-6) teacher for Garfield Montessori Magnet School and now I hold the same position at the combined Montessori Academy. I am a passionate advocate for Montessori, my students' well-being and success, and justice in the curriculum. I have a bachelor's from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and a Master's degree from St. Katherine's University in Minneapolis. I am certified to teach Montessori from 1st through 6th grade by AMS.
