Hi there, my name is Ms. Monaco! I am native to Arizona and have lived in Chandler pretty much my entire life. When I am not at school, I'm most likely spending time with my friends and family, crafting, or enjoying some country music. I joined CUSD in 2017 and before that spent time in Kyrene School District. This year is going to be full of fun and many adventures. I hope you are as excited about it as I am!

My Education and Professional Background

I was fortunate enough growing up knowing I was going to pursue a career in education. I began working with children at the age of fifteen. I was employed in the Kyrene School District within their after-school enrichment program working with k-5 for nearly eight years. After graduating high school, I attended Arizona State University where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Family & Human Development and returned to receive my Master's in Elementary Education.

My Educational Philosophy

Becoming an educator does not solely signify teaching, but also means accepting the role of encourager, nurturer, and advocator. It is my goal that each and every child who enters my classroom will be given the strength to find their individual voice and will also be heard. I believe that every child has the right to come to school and learn in a safe, respectful, and exciting setting. I take pride in being a passionate professional and strive to incorporate engaging and motivating lessons.
