Mrs. Sweezy

Welcome to Mrs. Sweezy’s first grade class website. I am originally from upstate New York, where I grew up and went to college. I have my Masters in Special Education and been teaching since 2011. The first five years of teacher I spent in Northern Virginia. I taught two years at Hanahan Elementary.  This is my second year at Newington. I have taught first grade, second grade, third grade and special education. I believe in providing a structured environment for students to learn. At home, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, Elliana. We also love going on walks with our two rescue dogs. As a family, we foster Great Danes and enjoy visiting our family in New York.


  • Dolphin folders go home on Wednesdays. Please return them on Thursday with the label on the front signed. Only return student work that has a line for a signature on it.

    Students are expected to read every night and practice their spelling words. I will not collect spelling homework, so it is up to the family to decide how they practice spelling words.
