Hi and welcome to the new school year! My name is Laurie Monk and I am so excited be joining the Milenio team this year!
I graduated from ASU with dual degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education. I also hold an endorsement in teaching English as a Second Language. I have taught 1st Grade, Kdg - 5th grade Special Education Resource, and have also taught Kdg - 6th grade Title 1 Reading. I spent many years as a stay-at-home mom, as well.
My husband, Steve, and I have two amazing children. Our son, Sean, graduated from ASU with a degree in Biology, and lives and works in Tempe. Our daughter, Sammi, is attending the U of A and is pursuing a degree in Psychology--GO WILDCATS! I really enjoy reading, traveling, and anything chocolate!
I look forward to seeing your child learn and grow this year! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any concerns or questions. I am a half-day teacher at Milenio, but I do try to check my emails throughout the school day.
I'm looking forward to helping your Falcon S-O-A-R!!
