Hello I am Saundra Barta. I am starting my 23nd year of teaching here at Swartz Creek. This year I will be teaching 8th grade Pre-Algebra and Algebra. I have taught math most of my years here but taught 3 years of Science when I first began.
I graduated from New Lothrop High School, Saginaw Valley State University (Bachelors Degree) and Marygrove College (Masters Degree). I currently live in the Chesaning School District with my husband Gary and our three children. Our daughter, Jordyn, is a Junior at Michigan State University. Our daughter, Erica, is a Junior at Chesaning High School and our son, Luke, is in the 5th grade at Chesaning MIddle School. My husband is a full-time farmer so outside of teaching I am busy helping him with our crop and beef cattle operation.
My family and I love sports (basketball, softball/baseball and volleyball) and are always on the go attending one of their competitions. My husband is a high school basketball official which keeps him active in the winter and in touch with his favorite sport. My children also show livestock (steers and sheep) at the Shiawassee County Fair which is a lot of fun. We are huge Michigan State fans considering my husband and his whole family are MSU grads and that our daughter is in the Nursing program there.
I am looking forward to this year and hope that all my students will have fun and be successful!
