Mrs. Lorrie Hefty

Welcome Bulldogs!! 

I am in my 11th year of teaching, and 6th year at SWMS.  I love reading, watch many TV series and theater-any stories that are told, I love to hear it!  I have three children in the district, two daughters at Free State High School and a son at SWMS.  I have been the advisor for the school newspaper and help with our theater productions as much as they'll let me! 


I'm excited to teach Social Studies/Geography in 7th grade for the 2020-21 school year. This year will be different but I'm excited by the opportunities that Distance Learning will provide us.  The KEY to a successful year for us all is COMMUNICATION.  I will send emails and post to Google Classroom weekly and you can email me any time and I will reply to you as quickly as possible.  I can set up video meetings with parents and/or students any day of the week and want to address your needs in a timely manner. 

Let's go! It's going to be a great year!
