Sylvia Setterberg

Kindergarten

 Hi, I’m Sylvia Setterberg.  This will be my third year teaching Kindergarten at Hawthorn Academy.  Prior to teaching Kindergarten I was a teacher’s aide in Kindergarten for 7 years. During these years I found I enjoyed helping the teacher lay a strong foundation for a young student’s academic career.  I decided that this is what I wanted to do too.  So I went back to school and earned Bachelor of Arts Interdisciplinary Studies K-6 from Western Governors University.
I love working with the students and faculty/staff at Hawthorn Academy. I’m excited for the challenges of the coming year and the opportunities I will have to help Kindergarteners become better learners, citizens, and friends!
