    Dear Parents and Students,
    First, I'd like to welcome everyone to 8th grade at Akimel A-al Middle School! This is my 14th year teaching at Akimel A-al and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. 
    I am a Kyrene kid myself. I went to Pueblo Middle School for 7th and 8th Grade, then graduated from Corona del Sol High School in Tempe. I got my Bachelor's Degree in Education from ASU in 2007 and recently completed my Masters in Educational Leadership at ASU as well. GO DEVILS! 
    I have quite a few roles here at AMS. As well as being an 8th grade Math teacher, I am also the Yearbook Advisor, Student Council Sponser, and Minitown Coordinator. I am also newly in charge of our CNM show.
    Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my friends, going to sporting events, concerts, bowling, taking photos, and more. I also spend my summers at the happiest place on Earth, AZ Soccer Camp! I am the Assistant Camp Director after starting as a camper when I was 13!
    I'm looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you this year! I hope you are ready to have some fun. :) 
    -Ms. Monaco
