Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Sweem

Sweem

My name is Carrie Sweem and I was born and raised in Puyallup, Washington. As an undergraduate, I attended the University of Washington and then graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a degree in Elementary Education. I began my teaching career in the Mukilteo School District 1997, then came to Arlington in 2000. I made the move from Post Middle School to Pioneer when it opened in 2002. That same year, I completed my Masters in Education with an emphasis in Science Education.

I absolutely love working in the Arlington School District and teaching in the school community in which I live. My children, Kjell and Helena (twins), also attend Pioneer and we live in the Gleneagle neighborhood.I love building relationships with my students both in and out of the classroom. In my spare moments I enjoy reading historical fiction, watching Downton Abbey, camping with my children, and visiting friends and family; And of course...Rooting for the Seahawks.
