Welcome to sixth grade at Placer School! My name is Dana Swain and I teach both language arts and ancient history. I first began teaching in 1988 and I have been teaching here at Placer Elementary school since 2004. My first teaching job at Placer was teaching fourth grade. I moved up to teaching sixth grade in 2014. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and our friends. I am married with two adult "children", Camille and Cris. My hobby is making quilts and I belong to the Pioneer Quilters Guild. I love to travel to new places near and far, taste new foods, and I try to learn something new every day. Together with my husband Jeff, we like to take drives with his various car clubs and I have recently become a Formula One Grand Prix race fan!
