Ms. Swanby: Media Specialist
Ms. Swanby

Welcome to Folwell’s Media Center!

I am Ms. Swanby and am excited to be your new Media Specialist at Folwell. It is my pleasure to work with all the wonderful students and great staff  at Folwell Performing Arts.

I have been a Media Specialist in Minneapolis for more than 15 years. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Purdue University in Elementary Education. I obtained my Masters of Science degree in Educational Technology from the University of Minnesota, Mankato.  I received my Media Specialist license from the University of Minnesota, Mankato.

When I am not working on Media / Technology classes I am either taking photographs of nature, walking my two dogs or reading an exciting book.

All Folwell parents are encouraged to visit our Folwell Media center anytime you can come in.
