Monica, a second grade teacher, has 11 years of service to education. She has taught at Willow Drive for the past four years. The most rewarding moment for Monica as a teacher is when she gets to ignite the spark of learning. When she is teaching a strategy and notices that her students are getting discouraged, Monica modifies and adjusts her lesson to support and encourage them. The feeling she gets when students catch on to a learning concept is absolutely priceless. Don’t let your students give up, and don’t ever give up on them.
