Hello, I am Theresa Schwager.  I have lived in Bellevue all of my life.  I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) (Cedar Falls, Iowa) with a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Early Childhood / Elementary Education.  I have been teaching for 31 years.  About 25 of those teaching years have been in Preschool.  Last year I taught a 3 year old of one of my preschool students I had in Andrew 25 years ago.  Wow!

I married Lynn Schwager 31 years ago and we have four children.  Emily is a supervisor of the Labs in West Des Moines.  She is married and expecting a baby boy in March!  Aaron is married and lives in Phoenix, Arizona and is an I.T. Engineer for Hensel Phelps Construction Company.  Daniel works for Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in their Turf Department.  Alec is a sophomore at the University of Iowa (Iowa City, Iowa) in the Tippie College of Business.  Lynn and I enjoy walking, riding bikes, and playing cards.

I have worked in the Activity Department with Joy here at Mill Valley for about 10 years.  I have really enjoyed that job and will miss it tremendously.  I have accepted the position of Environmental Services Supervisor here at Mill Valley.  I am looking forward to this new opportunity and continuing to work with all the wonderful people here.
