“Home of the Vikings”

Greetings from Mrs. Decker.  I am beginning my 22nd year of teaching at Swan Valley Middle School.  It seems like only yesterday that I began living my childhood dream of teaching children.

I got my Bachelor of Arts degree at Central Michigan University (Fire up Chips!) and did my Masters degree work at Saginaw Valley State University.  Over the past three summers, I have completed 10 semester hours of graduate credit in teaching the writing process. These degrees and summer workshops prepared me to teach English/Language Arts and Art Education.  I currently teach three sections of 7th grade Language Arts and one section each of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Art.

My interests include working out at Seung-Ni, jogging, reading, and vacationing in warmer climates.  I am also married and have no children, however, I have a large Maine Coon cat named Shadow who thinks he is a child.

I can be contacted by phone at (989) 921-2665 between 10:30 – 11:19 a.m. or by email at I look forward to hearing from you; in order that we keep open lines of communication with regard to your child’s progress.
