I am very excited to be joining the Swan Valley teaching team as the elementary Spanish teacher! This will be my fifth year teaching Spanish, but my first year with Swan Valley. I am originally from Midland, and after graduating from Midland High I attended Alma College. While at Alma, I enjoyed being active in many organizations while also playing softball for the Scots. I graduated in 2010 with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with Math and Spanish teaching minors and an early childhood teaching endorsement.

Before coming to Swan Valley, I taught elementary and middle school Spanish at St. Joseph School in Lake Orion, MI. In addition to teaching, I have also coached middle school basketball and Girls on the Run and will continue to coach Girls on the Run at Havens Elementary. 

I am looking forward to sharing my passion for the Spanish language with Shields and Havens elementary school students. As a teacher, there is nothing I enjoy more than watching a student learn and grow. I also hope to create an environment where students feel confident to explore a new language and enjoy coming to every week. If you have any questions, please contact me at cworkma@swanvalley.k12.mi.us.

Thank you!
